Recipe of the Week: Gazpacho

Source: The Pioneer Woman Cooks

This week's selection for Recipe of the Week is the Pioneer Woman's gazpacho– a delicious rendition of the classic chilled tomato soup chock full of vegetables and tons of vitamins and nutrients. Topped with avocado and cilantro and served with grilled bread and shrimp, it's light and refreshing– the perfect dish for summer.

I made this soup earlier in the week and have been eating it for lunch every day since. Not only is it great tasting, it's great for you and requires no cooking whatsoever. Half of the vegetables are blended and the other half are finely chopped, which gives the soup an amazing texture. I have to admit, prepping all the vegetables is a bit tedious, so if chopping veggies isn't your thing, this recipe is not for you.

I added in a jalape├▒o for extra kick and served with baguette slices drizzled with olive oil and a pinch of salt, rubbed with a crushed clove of garlic and grilled to perfection. Yum!
