Mothers Day Week - Spicy Gazpacho

ooooh, artsy!
Spicy Gazpacho
From my mom, who adapted it from Self Magazine.

3 cloves garlic, chopped
6 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tb thyme, chopped
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 lb tomatos, roughly chopped
1 cup cucumber, peeled seeded and diced
1 cup sweet peppers (red, orange, yellow) diced
1/2 cup red onion chopped
1/2 tsp celery salt
1 tb Worcestershire sauce
3 tb lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

In a food processor or blender, puree the garlic through tomatos until smooth. Refrigerate 1 hour, then strain thorough a sieve. Return the liquid to the processor and add the remaining ingredients. Pulse until you reach the desired consistency. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

I adore gazpacho! Great recipe. I can't wait to try it with the fresh summer tomatoes.

By the way, I'm already looking forward to WCC #6!
