Strawberry Gazpacho

When my kitchen counter begins to fill with fresh garden vegetables, I begin to search for just the right recipe to use for the wonderful fresh vegetables. Today I am making a fantastic Gazpacho, a cold spicy soup with a different combination of cucumbers, peppers and strawberries which blends a flavor that is fresh and delicious. I am serving this Gazpacho for a small luncheon today, but it could be served for a larger event or a family supper with a nice hot bread. We love this soup and sure hope you enjoy it!
