Gazpacho To Be

We're going to a potluck dinner party tomorrow. It'll be a big gathering of a wine-appreciation group - probably 30 people. The hosts provide the main course, and the attendees bring wine to coordinate with the main, and a contribution to the dinner (appetizer, side dish, salad, dessert, etc.).

Inspired by Neki's recipe and the availability of tomatoes and peppers from the farmer's market, I embarked on scalding, cutting, and chopping.

There are more tomatoes, but they're already in the boiling water, getting ready to peel. The light green pepper is slightly picante - not hot, just more intense than a Bell pepper.

To Neki's recipe, I added some paprika (both smoked - our new fave spice - and hot), and a little garlic.

So far, it tastes great - but I'll check the seasoning again after it's had time to chill.
