This was originally based on the Silver Palate Gazpacho, but it has evolved over the years. I only make this in the summer, because fresh Jersey tomatoes make the dish.

I made this for the Girl Scout Food Fest (for 80 servings) it was still easy and turned out great. I've made it since then and it is the BEST gazpacho around. Thank you Firehouse Cook!
