Gazpacho Soup is a typical cold red tomato-based and veggies soup from Spain. This is not that dish. This is; however, my twist on a Gazpacho inspired appetizer, and you know that I want you to make it for your 2016 Super Bowl Parties, right? Smile!
You can make my appetizer ahead of time and leave it in the fridge until ready to serve. Yes, I know, it looks “Fancy Dandy” for a Super Bowl Party; however, it is budget friendly and also a conversation piece. The portions are small, since there will be other appetizers to serve during the game. So, stop complaining and Enjoy!
