Gazpacho! The perfect summer soup!

With only a few summer veggies, you can make a delicious summer soup that is nutrient dense, light, refreshing and gets you out of the kitchen while its chilling in the fridge.  Here's my crowd pleasing recipe:


3 large ripe tomatoes
1 red onion
1 cucumber
1 fresh jalapeƱo 
2-3 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup of fresh parsley
1-2 bell peppers
2 cups of chicken broth
2 Tablesppons of lemon juice
1/3 cup of olive oil
Sea salt to taste
Paprika to taste

Chop all veggies and place in a large bowl.  Add chicken broth, olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and paprika and place in the refrigerator to chill for 2-3 hours, allowing the flavors to meld. Great with grilled fish, a cheese tray, roasted chicken, or as a snack!  
*for a great addition to this recipe, add avocado chunks, shrimp and/or minced anchovies. Delish!
