Author Notes

There is nothing mushy about this gazpacho. It's chock-full of diced vegetables - a veritable salad bowl of soup, if you will, which is why we refer to it as The Liquid Salad. The result is a chilled soup loaded with crunch, spice and south of the border heat, which is at once thirst quenching and satisfying to eat. (And when it's super-hot outside, crunching our soup is usually all of the exercise we can manage). —TasteFood
