As much as I try, I just can't like cold soup.

This sounds good, but that's not gazpacho... it's just cold tomato soup. Gazpacho has peppers and cucumber in it.

This looks yummy! I think I'd probably just do a wee slip of good olive oil on the soup to cut calories and add some cucumber to get a little crunch and more nutrients. I'd also choose either prosciutto or mozzarella for the sandwich to cut calories and sodium, but this looks like a really great idea for a cool easy supper.
