I love the freshness of the vegetables in a Gazpacho salad but decided I wanted to add a few extras. The addition of a small amount of cheese makes this salad a bit heartier and lends itself to a satisfying light lunch. Jalapenos are (as always!) a personal choice. The prep time includes chilling time.
