    Most gazpacho soup recipes are tomato-based, though some gourmet gazpacho recipes use cucumber, watermelon, grapefruit or avocado as a base. Gazpacho is a Spanish soup, served chilled, and is an excellent low-calorie starter for a dinner, and also work well served with bread for a light lunch. I love a cool gazpacho eaten outdoors on a warm summer evening.
