Summer Gazpacho, Part Two

Golden Tomato Gazpacho
Another day and another soup, this time using a golden heirloom tomato and a English cucumber. Wow really good and refreshing when served chilled on a hot day. The simple and few ingredients demand only the best to make this recipe stand out, perfect tomatoes are available now through the beginning of fall, so choose your favorite and blend with a touch of good quality vinegar such as a sherry or champagne, then a good healthy drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. I added cucumber in the blend and for the garnish along with diced red onion, avocado and fresh herbs. A cool idea would be to swirl two different colors of soup into each other for dramatic effect.
