My father made this cold tomato and zucchini soup the other day.
"Don't call it gazpacho."
"Why not? It looks like gazpacho, but with some zucchini."
"It's my soup. I made it up. It's not gazpacho. Don't call it gazpacho."
"Okay dad, whatever you say."
So instead, my brother Eddie has named it "The Farmer's Market in a Soup". And, given that dad brought home every ingredient except the seasonings and broth from our local farmers market, the name makes sense. It is a wonderfully cool, fresh soup for a hot summer day. Just don't call it gazpacho.Cold Tomato Summer Vegetable Soup Recipe
