A crunchy chilled dish of yellow pear tomatoes, sweet yellow peppers, garlic, and bits of red bell pepper, combined with traditional ingredients like cucumber, onion, and cilantro. Gazpacho is usually a chilled dish made of pureed or processed fruits and vegetables. We prefer to make ours thick and chunky, with plenty of garlic. This brightly colored and flavorful gazpacho is a refreshing side dish with red meat and potatoes. From "Fresh from Dover Canyon"
