Garden to Table Gazpacho Salad

There is nothing better than the flavor of fresh Gazpacho and this salad is fresh and full of flavor.  We are so fortunate to have fresh peppers, tomatoes, onions and basil in our garden that this salad is one trip to the garden and then just put it together and enjoy.

  8. This one goes right to the heart. It combines a lot of favorites and it would disappear quickly, if there is anything left to put on the table, after I start "Tasting". Thanks for sharing with My Meatless Mondays. Have a wonderful week.
