Instead of the usual summer salad, have some Gazpacho for lunch. It’s tasty, healthy and filling!

½ cup red bell pepper small chop
½ cup yellow bell pepper small chop
½ cup celery small chop
2 tsp diced jalapeno
1 cup cucumber (preferably hot house or Persian) small chop
2 qt low sodium V8
2 slices of sourdough bread (whole wheat preferably)
3 cloves garlic (can be roasted for more mild flavor)
2 oz. sherry vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp sea salt


Chop vegetables and set aside. Puree V8 with bread, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and sugar for several minutes on high. Add chopped vegetables and stir in. Chill until gazpacho is cold throughout. Garnish with celery seeds. Diced mango can also be added.
