Cool Gazpacho

Cool Gazpacho<br />
This dish is absolutely perfect for hot summer days and nights, with it&#8217;s refreshing flavors of cucumber, tomato and fresh herbs this soup is a great way to beat the heat. I took guidance from a recipe on About.com, but changed things up a little bit. Below is my adaptation.<br />
Ingredients (3-4 servings):<br />
1 Medium sized cucumber, sliced/chopped<br />
3 Tomatoes, chopped<br />
1 Red Bell Pepper, de-stemmed/seeded &amp; chopped<br />
2 Cloves Garlic<br />
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice<br />
1/2 White Onion, chopped<br />
3 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar<br />
1 tsp. Fresh Cilantro, minced<br />
1 tsp. Fresh Basil, minced<br />
A pinch of Cayenne Pepper<br />
Salt &amp; Pepper to taste</p>
<p>Directions:<br />
Put all ingredients in a fairly large blender or food processor, put the softer ingredients at the bottom to have it puree more easily. Blend until completely smooth and chill in the refrigerator before serving. I garnished my gazpacho with a dab of plain cashew cream and it was delicious!
