Notes

I have a salad mania these days, I just love the fresh veggies. I was checking what I have in my storage of food and all and then with the influence of the Tabouleh I also posted earlier today and my memory of a Gazpacho salad I got a few years ago, (and unfortunately lost the recipie) I came up with this great dish.
