Golden Gazpacho

In APPETIZERS/COCKTAILS, Recipes, Soup and Sandwiches by Frances Largeman-Roth

One the of quintessential flavors of summer is a cool, zesty bowl of gazpacho. I like including melon for a touch of sweetness and extra hydration. This vegan recipe is excellent on its own, but if you want to boost the protein, you can add sautéed shrimp, diced grilled chicken or chopped almonds.

I don’t have a full-size grill right now, and these sliders make me miss it more than I can say, but a grill pan still produces really excellent results.
