Although the extreme heat of the summer may be over, the tomatoes are still exploding off their vines. If you've made salsa and sauce, sliced them and sprinkled them with salt and eaten them like an apple, you may be in need of a new recipe. Gazpacho is a cold soup made from fresh raw vegetables and is traditionally eaten in Spain and Portugal. There are several ways to prepare it, but here is the Co-op's recipe.
