This is the perfect soup to make in the summer when it is really hot. There are many different ways to vary the recipe as well as alternatives to its use. Gazpacho can also be used as a sauce on top of a salad or on grilled fish or chicken. This weekend I stopped by a farm stand and picked up some fresh tomatoes before coming back into the city. I made this in an attempt to prepare for the heat wave that is suppose to come through the east coast this week!1 Cup of chopped red onion
