Gourmet Grapefruit Gazpacho

This gazpacho recipe is so good! It is a bit of a departure from the cool and smooth gazpacho that is popping up this time of year. This recipe has chunks of vegetables and a little heat. I like to serve chopped avocado on top for more color and to provide an ingredient that has a smooth flavor to contrast  the acidity of the tomatoes and citrus in the soup. This dish also presents beautifully and looks inviting on a hot summer day. Enjoy!
