Beating the Heat Wave with Refreshing Gazpacho (from Canyon Ranch)

It’s hard to get motivated to cook in the summertime, much less during the current heat wave.  Fortunately, gazpacho is one of those recipes that only requires some cutting and chopping, and, you’re good to go. Make it a day ahead and the flavors meld to perfection.
Give this one a try, courtesy of Canyon Ranch. You won’t be disappointed.

1/2 cup peeled and diced cucumbers
1/2 cup diced red and yellow bell peppers

1/4 cup peeled and diced carrots
3 cups tomato sauce
2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Chill in refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.
