Eat This: Lose Weight – Best Gazpacho Ever

Q:  How amazing and magical is it when someone (a good friend, neighbor or even a relative) shows up at your front door with a bowl of somethin’ special that she (or he) has just whipped up to share with you–that is not only delish, but healthy as well?

A:  Very amazing! :)

I am happy to report that when our dear friend, Betsy, surprised us (DH and me) with a bowl of her famous (in these here parts) Gazpacho!  I asked if I could share the recipe and Betsy said, “Sure! FYI…it’s a variation of the South Beach Gazpacho.

Without further ado, here is Betsy’s recipe, which I highly recommend, as does DH!   It was a spoon-to-spoon fight to the finish.  Loved it!!!

BETSY’S GAZPACHO:

Ingredients:
1 largish bell pepper, red or green, diced
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
1/2 – sweet onion, diced
1 clove garlic, diced (optional-Betsy did add, but no more than one clove)
14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes, pettit, w. juice
2 1/2 cups of V8 juice (regular) chilled
3 T. white vinegar
2 T. olive oil
Worcestershire to taste
Sea salt to taste (optional-Betsy did not add)

Directions:
In large bowl, mix all ingredients together.
Chill.
Serve.

Note:  Betsy diced everything into little squares.  It was crunchy. Delicious! Heavenly! Fabulous!

DIET TIP:   For those who are “nighttime” eaters, consider this as your nighttime snack!  Chow down guilt-free!
