Gazpacho is one of our favorite things about summer. One of the best things about this chilled, Spanish soup is just how many different ways you can make it. Red, green, white, golden -- the possibilities are almost endless, with a little imagination.

You can serve this soup as just about any course of the meal, as well: we love it as an hors d'oeuvre in large shot glasses or punch cups, as a classic first course, or as a main course, loaded up with veggies and a healthy side of crusty bread. You want to get crazy and serve fruit gazpacho for dessert? Don't let us stop you. Just be sure to send us a picture!
