Gazpacho with Cilantro Greek Yogurt

IMG_4766

This is no soup season…humidity and heat make it a bit painful to eat simmering soup.  While it may not be soup season, it is definitely the season of fresh veggies.  Whether you get your bright produce from your own backyard garden, local farmer’s market, or simply from the grocery store, now is the season to truly enjoy the fresh flavors of summer veggies.  While it may not be hot soup season, one of my favorite ways to use my summer produce is in a cold refreshing gazpacho.
