When I was in college in Louisville, KY, I was lucky enough to live next to a chef in training. One day I mentioned that I was looking for a good gazpacho recipe and he scratched this out for me in minutes. I have been using it for about 18 years! Thus, its ugly appearance.
This picture is a little more attractive. Gazpacho is from Spain and I've heard people call it "liquid salad" which describes it well. It can be served cold or at room temp and is great on the hottest days of summer. O.K. I'm done talking about it... the recipe is below.
Blend the following ingredients in a blender or food processor:
1 bell pepper
1 pint of V8 juice(I like spicy)
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 dash of tobasco
1/2 t celery salt
1 t fresh garlic
2 t salt and 1 tsp pepper
Add these following ingredients to the soup chopped finely but not blended:
1 small onion minced
1 stalk of celery minced
1 tomato diced
dash of cumin
Garnish with cilantro if you like.
