Low Carb Gazpacho

Low Carb GazpachoI call this the “Cheater’s Version” Gazpacho as my base starts with spicy V-8 juice. This soup was originally a peasant concoction made simply with mashed bread, vegetables, and tomatoes, originating in the southern Andalusia region of Spain. Gazpacho has been described as a soup-salad or liquid salad and is the quintessential hot summer day lunch or accompaniment. It’s spicy, hearty, healthy, good-and oh yeah, it also makes a pretty kick butt salsa too.
