    FloridaNative's Note:

    The soup we know as gazpacho originated in Spain's southern region of Andalusia. Farm harvesters traditionally prepared their lunches in the fields by pounding garlic, stale bread, water, olive oil, and salt in a large wooden bowl, forming a sort of nourishing paste to which they added cold water. Legend maintains that Christopher Columbus took barrels of this paste on his first voyage to the New World. Discovering tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers in the Andes, he added them to the mix, creating the liquid salad we still call gazpacho. From "The Florida Keys Cookbook". Prep/Cook time DOES NOT include overnight refrigeration time.

      The Clamato really gave this a nice flavor. Gazpacho is one of my most favorite summer treats and this sure hit the spot. Made for holiday tag.

      Perfect summer recipe. This one is much lighter on oil than most gazpacho recipes I've tried, which makes it very refreshing, and I love the herbs. I really don't care for clamato, so I subbed it for an extra measure of spicy vegetable juice. I found it's also great with a squeeze of lemon. I imagine vodka would be excellent as well.

      I love Gazpacho, and this one didn't disappoint! Like Evelyn's idea of adding vodka...in a martini glass, that would make it an appetizer/apertif all in one and great for a party!! Will make this for a summer cookout for sure!
