Cool Gazpacho for a Hot Day

Cool Gazpacho for a Hot Day
No one wants to cook on a hot day! Why not try a cool refreshing gazpacho? It's sort of like a salsa soup and you can make it as spicy as you like. It's superb if you can find home grown tomatoes - it goes together quickly and keeps well! Add crab meat or shrimp and avocado and it's a filling dish! 


2 Cups bread crumbs - use a good, dense bread. Sourdough adds an interesting flavor.
3 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
1 medium cucumber, peeled and seeded cut into 1/4" dice 
2 sweet red bell peppers, diced
3 jalapenos, diced
1 Medium red onion, chopped
5 ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
5 Cups tomato juice
1/2 Cup fresh lime juice
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1 Tbsp ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 lb Jumbo Lump Crab meat, picked over
1 ripe avocado, diced


Combine bread crumbs and garlic and set aside.

Combine the cucumber, red pepper, jalapeno, onion and tomatoes in a large bowl. Pour in the tomato juice and lime juice. Stir to combine.

Add the bread crumb mixture and stir in the olive oil.

Puree half of the soup in a food processor or blender and stir back into the half that's not pureed.

Season with the cumin, salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until cold.

Just before serving, stir in the crabmeat or shrimp and avocado.
