Cucumbers + Tomatoes = Gazpacho

So I have a lot of cucumbers and tomatoes from my garden. I figured I would do the obvious when you have too many tomatoes and cucumbers and since it's 90 degrees outside I decided to make gazpacho. I started with Ina Garten's recipe on the Food Network and while it's perfectly edible and tastes good I feel it's missing something. What are your tips / secret ingredients for gazpacho?

I was thinking of adding either some hot peppers, olives, or maybe some anchovies but I wanted to see if anyone else had some outside the recipe box type ideas.
