This soup is so good, I can barely stand it. I'm a gazpacho-junkie so this dish couldn't have been tastier. I must admit, I cheated a bit. I used commercially canned tomato juice...but that bumped up the quickness rating.

I would only recommend this if you have really awesome produce to use. Mine was lackluster, and it really showed in the end result.

Divine! I always use tomato juice in lieu of juicing the tomatoes (I don't have a juice extractor) in this recipe. And for tonight's dinner party I added little salad shrimp. It's delicious, refreshing and GONE way too soon.

I prefer to squish tomatoes instead of using the juice. It tastes fresher and there's something satisfying about squishing tomatoes in a colander. I use about 8 largeish tomatoes to make 3 or for modest servings.

We were pleasantly surprised how good this recipe was. I was very skeptical about how this mixture of ingredients would turn out. We have never tried a cold soup before because it never sounded all that appealing. After I mixed everything together and took a look at the soup, I thought to myself, "yuck" and quickly made a plan B for dinner (pizza delivered). I took a taste and was shocked at how good it was! We ate it all. Great flavor and consistency. I did what HIPPYJEN75 did and made “Grilled Poblano Pepper and Mango Quesadillas” using the mango filling from the “Fish Tacos with Tropical Fruit Salsa” recipe we recently made. Everything turned out delicious. The only difficulty with this recipe is finding GOOD tomatoes. I went to 3 different stores looking for tomatoes and was not happy with any, so I broke down and used canned tomato juice. I did buy two vine ripened tomatoes to dice up for the soup, but even they had no tomato flavor. Does anyone know where to buy/get GOOD tomatoes that TASTE like tomatoes? We will make this soup again.

I substituted the chopped Tomatoes w/Hunts Petite diced Tomatoes and added a dash of Tabasco. This soup is FANTASTIC on a hot Summer evening!

My family had low expectations for this recipe. I'd never made a cold soup for dinner before and both daughter and husband were skeptical. Well, after they tasted this delicious soup, they were pleasantly surprised. My husband even went back for seconds! I served this with the Grilled Poblano Pepper and Mango Quesadillas from this site. My husband said that this must be added to the rotation. Thanks so much for the delicious recipe. Oh, and taking the time to juice the tomatoes is worth it, as well as having the freshest ingredients that you can find. The only change I made was to use dried cilantro (the store was out of fresh) and also used fresh basil because I had some and wanted fresh herb included. Again, thanks so much!!!

It takes a bit of time to juice the tomatoes, but it's well worth the trouble. Get the ripest tomatoes you can find and the flavor will be amazing!
