I hate most Gazpacho because  it tastes like I’m choking down salsa.  However, my best friend’s mother introduced me to a new version of this cold soup that I simply crave.  It is best made from the freshest ingredients straight from the garden.  No reason to be exact with the measurements.  Just try as you go.  The secret ingredient here is surprise surprise – Worcestershire sauce!  Sounds weird, but give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
