I serve this gazpacho salad as a main dish, either cold or at room temperature. It's especially great on a warm summer day.

This was excellent! I did make a couple of changes. I realized after reading over the ingredients that this reminded me of Mexican shrimp cocktail and because we like cilantro a lot better than basil, I chose to use cilantro instead. I'm sure basil would be good too but I'm going to stick with cilantro when I make this again. The other change is that I had to serve the asparagus on the side if I expected hubs to eat it. Read More

The most charm is with purple onions. If you don't measure all just correctly, the tastes of tomatoes don't remind us of gazpacho. But I like the concept. Read More

I followed the first suggestion substituting cilantro for basil. I also increased the spices. A wonderful refreshing summer salad served cold. Read More
