Gazpacho is a Spanish Cold soup made of raw vegetables, fruits and served cold, originating in the Southern Spanish. Gazpacho is widely eaten in Spain and neighboring Portugal. It is cool and refreshing drink in hot summers, includes bread, olive oil, tomato, garlic with the addition of vinegar. Now a days many modern varieties of Gazpacho are made in different colors and omitting the tomatoes. Summers are full of fresh and juicy fruits like watermelon, oranges, so I also thought to make my version of Gazpacho with high water content using watermelon, juicy, full of vitamin A, C potassium, pectin, calcium oranges, mint/herbs best coolant, basil (also a coolant). It's easy and no cook recipe with lots of fruits and veggies, great way to serve daily fruits and veggies in one servings.
