Kendra PeloJoaquin's Note:
A perfect summer dish. In a chilled bowl with a wedge of lemon on the side, Gazpacho is very classy looking. I learned this recipe in 7th grade when a woman from Spain visited our class during "International Week". She made it in front of us and it took about 10 minutes. About 8 years later, I remembered the recipe on a really hot day, and I've *never* had any leftovers regardless of how many batches I make.

- 4Use the"chop" or"grate" function until the gazpacho is soupy but still has some good sized chunks.
- 5Taste and then add more salt, pepper, oil or basil to your preference.
- 6I usually serve this*very* cold as a summer appetizer or meal w/ tabasco and parmesean cheese on the side, and some good crostini or bread.
