How to Make Classic Gazpacho
While there are many variations of this soup, the classic remains a favorite with its crisp, clean flavors. Serves 10.
Chill the produce before making the soup to reduce the amount of time needed to chill the soup down. Also try chilling the bowls before serving the soup.
