Vitamix Recipe: Gazpacho

No one needs to remind you or your customers how HOT summertime can be- especially this year. You definitely are not going to see hot soups like Cream of Asparagus and Minestrone being ordered like hotcakes this time of year. Instead, give your customers a more refreshing soup, like Gazpacho.

In honor of July’s Product Palooza, it’s only right to give you a recipe for Gazpacho that requires the use of a Vitamix Blender (although you can use any blender to make this of course).
