Fresh and refreshing, this soup is an excellent snack on a hot summer day.

Another hot day in the Big Apple! A bright, cold tomato and melon gazpacho is always in order when it's as hot as I find as satisfying as a colorful salad. This is another quick and easy recipe that involves just cooking. Taken from one of my absolute favorite Simple to Spectacular cookbooks by Jean-George Vongerichten and Mark Bittman, this fruity gazpacho is sweet, tart, and smooth in texture. Combining it with some grilled shrimp takes it to another level of sophistication and makes it a meal.
