What’s a soup-lover to do when the weather gets too warm for big crock pots full of piping-hot broth?
Cold soup! Gazpacho is a Spanish soup traditionally served cold, so it’s perfect for the hot months. It has a bunch of different variations, but all of them center around some kind of tomato broth with fresh vegetables. Here, the soup itself is full of summer produce, with plenty of lime and fresh herbs for flavor.
Each bowl of soup is topped off with a few grilled shrimp to add some protein and extra nutrition. Gazpacho is traditionally an appetizer; this would be great as the starting course for any variety of kabobs, grilled steak, or any kind of fresh fish to keep up the Mediterranean theme.
