To me, there are few vegetables that translate the freshness of summer like cucumbers and tomatoes. The combination of the two is perfectly refreshing and it invites us to relax and enjoy. It must be because both ingredients are light and fresh and, unless you have certain health problems, they'll always settle well in your stomach. Since the temperature is rising in many parts of the world, I bring these fresh gazpacho shots in a much lighter form. There are thousands of recipes for this dish, about as many chefs as there are in Spain, but in this recipe we'll be using grilled tomatoes. I think this gives them a special and unique taste, combined with these delicious little cups of cucumber. In the south of Spain, where it's hot almost year round, its custom in all the homes to prepare jars of gazpacho to keep refrigerated and enjoy all day. This recipe is nutritious and easy to make. When you have guests, all you have to do is make these little cucumber cups and in just a few minutes you'll have a colorful and rich appetizer. Serve these shots on the beach or at the pool, while camping or just at home. This is one cucumber recipe that you can always make because you probably already have the ingredients at home. Prepare them and see how refreshing they are!
