Gazpacho

Now, for some soup! Gazpacho is far from the flavorful tomato and/or pumpkin soups your mom used to make. For one thing, it's often served cold. It's the Spanish savory answer to ice cream of cooling up when the weather outside is just too hot. If there's any heat in this soup, it's the spicy kick courtesy of the red peppers and onions that are part of its ingredients. Mixed with avocado and served with some nice bread, it's the perfect dish to eat while you continue to talk business with your client during your lunch meeting.
