Chilled Pineapple Gazpacho

This delicious, intensely flavored soup (created by Sunset reader and chef Jason Edwards of San Francisco) demands fresh pineapple juice. You may be tempted to use canned juice, but trust us--it's just not the same. If you make the soup a day ahead, add the onion and chile no more than 2 hours ahead of serving.
