It’s late April and it is starting to get warmer outside. This healthy dish is a gazpacho soup (a cold Spanish or Mexican soup made from vegetables and served chilled). When the temperatures begin to rise, you will find this soup to be incredibly cool and refreshing. The mint and cucumber aid in the cooling effect. This recipe is also amazingly fast, easy and healthy!
