Gazpacho

I’m a soup addict, to the point I’ll even eat hot soup during the triple digit heat of DC in August.  However, it is a nice treat to have a flavourful soup that is cold and refreshing!  I came across this recipe in my Vitamix recipe book and made some tweaks based on what I had available.
