Gazpacho, the classic fresh-vegetable salad from Spain that eats like a soup, usually takes a lot of chopping. In this streamlined recipe, most of the chopping is done for you by using canned tomatoes and vegetable juice. Because vegetable juice is a combination of several vegetables, you get most of the garden-fresh quality of a traditional gazpacho in a single ingredient. By adding some smoked turkey, this traditional light soup serves as a hearty, one-pot main-dish meal. For a spicier gazpacho, add a dash of hot pepper sauce.
