Gaspacho - Cold Tomato Soup

Reposted after our Labor Day get-together. Family from Montana, and Utah converge to spend the last days of summer eating and enjoying everyone's company. And what better than a cool bowl of delicious soup.

Vacations aren't really time off, they are just a change of venue. I keep cooking, cleaning, caring and doing all the things I do at home, just in a different place and sometimes at a disadvantage. It's hard to eat GF on vacation so we stay at condos with cooking facilities.

This recipe is naturally GF, so it's kind of a cheat to put it on this site and call it GF.

So good on these hot summer days. I make up a batch while the gardens are overflowing with produce and we eat it all week.

32 ounces V-8 Juice
6 cups tomatoes diced (1/2 blended up with the V-8)
2 cups cucumbers diced
1 cup onions diced
1/2 cup each green and yellow peppers
1 cup celery
2 Tbs. fresh cilantro
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. rice vinegar
2 Tbs cider vinegar
3/4 tsp. pepper
4 cloves garlic minced
1/2 lb. shrimp (optional)
3-4 drops tabasco (added to taste)
