"Definitely a summer favorite. Maybe I am not savvy enough in the kitchen, but the veggies do take a bit longer to chop. I do use a hand stick blender and pulse a few times to reduce the veggies, creating a consistency just a few pulses away from a purée."

"I love gazpacho and am always looking for recipes. This one was very good--very refreshing for dinner on a 98 degree day.. I used low sodium v8 juice (couldn't find low sodium tomato juice). I felt it maybe lacked a little zing--next time will use the spicy V8 juice or add some hot sauce. Also, it might be interesting to throw the soup in a blender--not for long, just enough to slightly reduce the size of the chopped vegetables (maybe I didn't chop mine finely enough??)"

"This is very similar to a Shrimp Cocktail I get frequently at a local Mexican restaurant. I think boiled shrimp added to this would be delicious!"

"This looked so interesting to me but my husband wasn't sure how he'd like "cold soup". I loved it! My husband had 2 helpings that night and again for lunch the next day. It was so refreshing... really! Loved it! Will definitely make it again!"
