Gazpacho with Shrimp for Style Me Pretty Living

Gazpacho with Shrimp Audrey'sInspired by our trip to Spain, I created this summery gazpacho for Style Me Pretty Living. With lots of tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers being delivered by my CSA, I decided to recreate this iconic cold soup, but with shrimp like I had at a tapas restaurant. This is the perfect summer meal – it comes together in minutesĀ and the shrimp add protein and bulk to your lunch. Serve it with crusty bread and you’ll have a great family dinnerĀ or a fancy party appetizer! Enjoy!
