80--- Spicy Thai Cucumber Gazpacho

I love Thai food.  And there's something about Thai spice that doesn't kill me like Mexican spice.  Why is that?  

A cold cucumber gazpacho with a spicy Thai kick.  Sounds like summer to me!

Spicy Thai Cucumber Gazpacho
Serves 4

2 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
3 green onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, pressed and minced
1/2 fresh habanero pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cup low sodium vegetable broth, chilled
1 Tbsp lite soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 tsp Sriracha hot sauce

Combine cucumbers, green onions, garlic, and habanero in a food processor.  Chop until a puree is formed.  With food processor running, slowly add remaining ingredients.  Mix until combined.

Place mixture in a covered bowl in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

*This is a lovely side dish to some grilled shrimp or a curry dish!
