    This was surprisingly refreshing...I am not a big fan of cold soup and DH is not a fan vegetables and we both really liked it. I made it as the recipe instructed and the relish really made it extra special. I served it with the recommended garlic bread. and it really rounded out the meal

    This was easy and tasted great! Since frozen cooked small shrimp were on sale, used those - no need to chop! I also left my soup a little chunky, gives it more texture. Needed to add a little more vegetable juice. Even the leftovers were good the next day. The avocado is a great finishing touch. Will definitely make again.

    My partner will only eat shrimp with cocktail sauce but raved about this soup. Like another reviewer, I like my gazpacho a little chunky, so rather than food processing till smooth, I only hit it 3-4 times. To compensate, I added 8 oz of juice. I doubled the garlic, loved the cilantro flavor, and added about 1T of soy sauce. The relish *made* the dish!

    This gazpacho was delicious. I added pasta, but will not do that next time. The relish was great on top. Will definitely make this again.

    I made the recipe exactly as instructed, but found the cilantro flavor really overwhelming. I also prefer a chunkier gazpacho, so I wasn't fond of the pureed texture. Next time I'll use maybe 1/4 of the cilantro and only puree a portion of the soup, leaving some chunks. The relish was very good, and I made some garlic bread as suggested which was a nice complement to the soup.

    Great dish for summer. I like to add a little pasta to the soup as well. With a simple salad and some good bread and you have a fairly easy an delicious meal.

    NOTE: I made this recipe AS IS. No changes so it magically becomes a better recipe. What I love about a good gazpacho is that it makes all the vegetables come alive. The shrimp in this was completely distracting. All this tasted like was bland shrimp in a mediocre gazpacho. Barely enough flavor. The only thing I enjoyed was the recipe for the garlic bread. I will be making that again. As for the gazpacho, I will go back to my tried and true recipe.

    This gazpacho delicious and refreshing. The relish is outstanding, but then again avocado makes almost anything better. And the shrimp are delicious, making this a healthy, light meal. I have made this with and without jalapeno, good both ways. Will continue to make again and again!

    Delicious and fresh. Next time, I'll add a little more garlic salt and hot sauce.

    first attempt at making gazpacho. Delicious and just as good as my restaurant favorites. Friends agreed. Terrific with the shrimp and avocado relish!! Probably 30 minutes of chop/prep time but well worth it.
