Quick Classic Gazpacho
For the ultimate gazpacho, you must peel, seed, dice, salt, and drain really good, vine-ripened tomatoes. But if you don't have time to fuss with fresh tomatoes, try this gazpacho with canned tomatoes. I've found the canned variety makes a fine substitute. Another advantage? Fresh tomatoes start to deteriorate as soon as the soup is refrigerated, but canned tomatoes are unaffected by the chill.
