This is like a fresh version of the ever-convenient dump-and-go soup. Only instead of a bunch of canned goods getting dumped into the soup pot, in this recipe a bunch of fresh ingredients gets dumped into the blender and pulsed to soupy perfection. If you don’t have a lot of time for the soup to chill, just chill all the ingredients as well as the blender pitcher and your serving bowls in advance so that everything is nice, cold and ready to serve once the soup is blended. If you have an abundance of melon on hand, try adding 1 cup of diced canteloupe or watermelon to the gazpacho to lend a touch of sweetness.
