GAZPACHO ..... The wonderful chilled vegetable soup that is a treat for the hot summer days.

Today is Flash Back Friday. The recipe I offer today came from my husband's late Aunt Maryann. A family get together was always such fun because dinners were a real taste treat. The remainder of the day was spent playing cards and visiting. What a great memory!
1 clove garlic, minced
2 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped
2 cucumbers, peeled and chopped with seeds removed
1 mild onion, diced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 cup tomato juice or more
2 10 1/2 cans consomme
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive or cooking oil
1 teaspoon tarragon
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons salt
Pepper to taste
Directions: Chill at least 24 hours.
