    I love gazpacho, but I also add some balsamic vinegar. Yummm. Personally, I love the taste of olive oil, and my weight loss does better when I get some healthy fat instead of going nonfat. - 10/11/09

    Yum yum yum! I also added about a tablespoon of horseradish, because it turned out that I didn't have cayenne pepper at home like I thought. The horseradish was yummy! You could add all sorts of stuff to this soup! - 8/22/09
