This Salad Is A Soup


Carrots, celery, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and red bell peppers. And a little onion and garlic. All raw except the tomatoes, which I boiled to remove the skins.


Garnished with a baguette (that's yummy Earth Balance spread) and tarragon. The tarragon does a lot for the finished dish.

I followed this recipe to the letter: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/06/health/blender-gazpacho-with-celery-carrot-cucumber-and-red-pepper.html. The only thing I changed was to use cherry tomatoes and remove the skins. Next time I might reduce the garlic to one clove; I did remove the green part (a first for me) but the after-garlic is a bit strong. I think it's a fabulous recipe; expectations exceeded.
