When the temperature drops in the winter, nothing can be more satisfying then a bowl of steaming hot soup. For a cool twist on this hearty favorite, try a refreshing bowl of tomato-based gazpacho. Inspired by Spanish cuisine, this "liquid salad" is packed full of flavor and nutrients. If you've never tried gazpacho before, start with a classic recipe, like this one made with fresh tomatoes, onions and peppers, or this simple version, which calls for canned tomato soup and beef broth. Add a fruity twist with Emeril's Spanish style gazpacho, made with strawberries, or give your meal a splash of summer sweetness with this watermelon-flavored recipe.
Serve gazpacho with plenty of fresh bread for dipping, and garnish with cilantro, sour cream and lime.
