Gazpacho is a chilled soup that’s packed with fresh vegetables and a little kick. Serve it in large mugs to keep it from getting messy.
4 c. tomato juice
2 c. chopped tomatoes
1 c. chopped cucumber
1/2 c. chopped red onion
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/2 c. thawed frozen or fresh corn
1/2 c. chopped green bell pepper
1/4 c. chopped green onions
1/4 c. chopped zucchini
1/4 c. chopped mild green chiles
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic -- minced
2 T. red wine vinegar
2 T. lime juice
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill for 3 to 4 hours before serving. Serve chilled.
This may also be prepared by pureeing half of the ingredients in a food processor or blender and leaving the remaining ingredients finely chopped, if a chunky version is not desired.
