Yea, finally summer

Yes, it's finally summer. I know because I've just made my first batch of gazpacho soup!
This year's recipe
Carla tomatoes
Hoppie's hot peppers
Hoppie's garlic
and farmstand cucumbers, bell peppers, celery, onion, and scallions.
+ apple cider vinegar, salt, and olive oil.

I did about 2/3rds puree to 1/3rd dice with made a thick soup. (but it does pour!) and had yummy vegetable bits which makes you feel more like you're eating gazpacho and less like you're drinking V8.

I did not add water or tomato juice.

I did peel and seed the cucumbers. I did not peel or seed the tomatoes. I removed the bell pepper seeds and ribs, but not the hot pepper seeds or ribs.

Note to self: Always start with your big bowl for the soup. Because you sadly underestimate how much soup you make, every single time.
