This easy to make gazpacho uses sweet fruit and hot pepper, making it a spicy and fruity alternative to the more traditional tomato based gazpacho. I usually serve this along with a crisp cold spinach salad. It's a perfect summer dinner. Prep time includes 2 hour chill time. This recipe is adapted from one in the Low Fat Living Cookbook. This recipe can be made up to 24 hours in advance.
