Foodie Friday: Classic Gazpacho Soup

Gazpacho is a raw and cold soup, made with tomatoes and various vegetables. The recipe originated in the Andalusia region of Spain, and was originally blended with stale bread.

Gazpacho Soup is an ideal summer meal, with many variations on the classic recipe. Once the soup is made in advance, no re-heating is necessary. Simply serve and enjoy.
