Cherry Sriracha Gazpacho

Don't ask me why, in the dead of winter, some good-looking cherries popped up in my grocery store.  Sometimes I just don't trust produce that is completely out of season, but these were really tasty.  Yes... I was that girl, tasting one of the cherries before I put them in my cart.  If you don't have a freakish arrival of out-of-season produce, save this one for the summer months.
