Puree half of the tomatoes in the blender, and transfer to the bowl with cucumber mixture. Puree remaining tomatoes, slowly adding oil while blender is running.

    Where is the nutritional information? The magazine always lists the breakdown.

    Hummm, I am wondering what the benefit of adding to a bowl is, less it would be too much liquid for the blender if done all together at one time in the blender? I will try this one later, when the weather is warm again. I adore Gazpacho!

    Why waste the bowl? Combine the bread ingredients in the blender, pulse once, and then continue with step 2, adding other ingredients to the blender. I don't think these folks do their own dishes.
