Reviews for Quick Gazpacho
"Thanks for jiggling my memory....I bought three English cucumbers over the weekend and wasn't sure how I'd use the other two after I tried one new recipe. Haven't made gazpacho in a couple of years....like mine icy cold and usually float an ice cube in it when serving. I, too, use the Spicy Hot V-8."
"Very tasty! I added cilantro which went very well with the taste"
"I've made this with regular V-8 juice and the Spicy Hot V-8 version (I omit the added hot pepper sauce in this case). My husband prefers the spicy, but I like the regular. I also prefer not adding the salt. This is a very good gazpacho recipe."
