This is the best soup I've ever had. So subtle, so amazing. Skipped the jalepenos and added mayo instead of sour cream because that's what I had on hand and put in my tomato gazpacho.

I made this for an outing on the lake. While I love regular (tomato) gazpacho, one of my friends suffers from acid reflux, so I made this instead. Everyone LOVED it! At one reviewer's suggestion I swapped balsamic vinegar for red wine vinegar. Also pureed the whole thing, which made for a lovely texture, albeit no crunch. Could do it either way, really. But perfect for a hot summer day's outing.

What a wonderfully refreshing soup! The temperatures here have been in the high 90's and this soup was an amazing fix to the "I'm too hot to eat" blues! Taking a cue from the other reviewers, I halved the vinegar and switched it to balsamic. I also used half the amount of jalapeno pepper due to personal preferences. A delight to the eye and the palate! Thanks Nana Lee!
