Ah, summertime. Baseball and swimming. Catching fireflies. The smell of freshly-mown grass. Beach trips, picnics, and cook-outs. Hamburgers and hotdogs. And soup! Soup? Oh yeah, soup!

Most people think of soup as something you enjoy on chilly winter nights. We sometimes forget about all the fantastic cold soups that are perfect for this time of year.

Toss the veggies in the food processor, blitz a few times, and there you have it…gazpacho! I did embellish this one with some shrimp sauteed with a little garlic and lemon and served it with cheese toasts alongside.

It’s delicious on its own, but the shrimp and toasts really put it over the top.

How to Make Gazpacho with Garlic Shrimp

Preparing veggie garnish in a small bowl.

Cut 8 of the grape tomatoes into quarters. Combine with 1/4 cup of diced cucumber, 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper, and 1/4 cup diced onion. Mix and set aside to use for garnish.

All remaining ingredients in a food processor.

Combine remaining tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell pepper with 2 tablespoons of the oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, 2 of the garlic cloves, and drained San Marzano tomatoes in a food processor.

Pulsed veggies in the food processor.

Pulse until roughly chopped. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Cooking lemon-garlic shrimp in a skillet.

When ready to serve, combine the remaining tablespoon of oil, lemon juice, remaining garlic clove (finely minced), with the shrimp in a medium bowl. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

Add the butter to a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, about 4 minutes or until shrimp is done.

To serve: Ladle soup into serving bowls. Top with a few tablespoons of the garnish and several shrimp. Serve cheese toasts on the side.

For the cheese toasts: Preheat the broiler to high. Slice a traditional or whole wheat baguette into 8 slices.

Place slices on a baking sheet. Broil for 2 or 3 minutes or until toasted. Remove from oven and sprinkle each slice with about 2 teaspoons of Pecorino Romano (or Parmesan) cheese. Broil 1 more minute or until the cheese is melted.
