This recipe for Wolfgang Puck's no cook gazpacho (which can be made a day ahead) was in the cooking section of my newspaper today....It sounded sooo good, I just had to share it with my friends here. (The recipe is from his most recent book: "Pizza, Pasta and More!" - Random House, $35.) There is no "cooking" time, but 2 hours chilling time.

This is FABULOUS! I reduced the amount of olive oil to 1/2 C to reduce fat and sat fat values. And substituted merlot for the sherry vineagar. OMG, it is yummy! THANK YOU for posting this recipe.

This was so good even in the winter! I did not use any of the garnish ingredients and this soup was still very yummy. I left mine a bit more chunky and enjoyed it very much.
