Author Notes

I like all manner of gazpacho, and wanted to make my own version that would use my farmer's market stuff already in the fridge, and avoid bell peppers, which I detest. I like to add some yogurt, which I suppose makes this something other than gazpacho, to give it a little tang, and body. —Jestei
