Begin by roasting the Anaheim chile and jalapenos in the oven or on the stove top in a cast iron pan.
While the peppers are roasting, chop all the other vegetables and place them in a bowl with the sauces and spices. Add the roasted peppers once they are ready.
Note: If you want to make more of a gazpacho dressing, use a food processor to blend the chopped vegetables more thoroughly.
Once all the ingredients are combined, refrigerate the salad recipe for several hours to let the flavors blend. To serve, lay the tomato slices on a serving platter or individual serving plates and spoon the green gazpacho over the tomatoes with a slotted spoon. Top with a dollop of sour cream if you wish.
