Fast and Fresh Gazpacho

Step away from the stove. I repeat: Step away from the stove. If it's hotter than a jalapeño in your kitchen, then allow me to introduce you to summer's biggest dinner winner: Quick and Easy Gazpacho! Fresh veggies, garlic and a drizzle of oil and vinegar whiz together in a food processor or blender, and the result is a creamy, cool, no-cook meal perfect for dishing into big bowls or serving as appetizer-sized shooters.
