Salsa Gazpacho

"This is a variation on My Salsa, which my 9 year old nephew created after seeing gazpacho being made on one of the cooking shows on television. He wanted to make salsa, but he also wanted it to be more of a vegetable dish than a snack, so we played around with the recipe and came up with this. He presented it at dinner in a giant-sized margarita glass, and served individual servings in normal sized margarita glasses, garnished with a lime wedge and a green onion brush in each glass."
