Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a wonderful Spanish vegetable soup that is served chilled. It brings many summer vegetables together and has a bit of spice and acidity. You can add grilled shrimp or other seafood, and is always a hit at picnics.

If you are new to cooking, I find this to be an excellent way to get your primary cooking skills started. This chilled soup will help you to learn proper chopping techniques, and will remind you to taste, taste and taste before serving.

My gazpacho is similar to others, but I use V8 vegetable juice, as I find V8 imparts the great Tomato and vegetable flavor without too much of the typical acidity that comes from canned or jar tomatoes.
