Garden gazpacho in a jar, from Apron Strings

Garden gazpacho in a jar, from Apron Strings.

Each year, I grow a few more herbs and vegetables in my garden, and what I don't grow myself, I get in abundance from generous friends with greener thumbs than mine. Whenever I receive a gift of vegetables, I like to return some of what I make to the gift giver. Tomatoes, cucumbers and cilantro spell one of two things: salsa, or soup. Apron Strings' garden gazpacho in a jar, packed with instructions to the recipient to blend the contents into a fast, fresh soup, couldn't be more perfect, as I get to combine what I receive with what I harvest from my own garden. Pop the entire jar into the refrigerator for a few hours, then blend, taste for seasoning, and serve very cold.

I love the way the food bloggers all support each other. Thanks for the beautiful recipe/gift idea, and also for a new blog to follow. I'm making broccoli soup tonight. Broccoli is the current special at 58 cents/pound!

Shirley, I'd love to get a jar of this gazpacho!

Jeri, at that price, I hope you bought lots and lots of broccoli.
