Due to the steamy and hot weather of Florida I have been wanting to eat fresh, mediterranean and cold food. I asked Marialuisa a friend blogger from Spain with her blog decocinasytacones for the gazpacho recipe.
The gazpacho is a cold soup originally from the south of Spain, Andalusia. Made with raw vegetables. Is refreshing, perfect to have it during hot summer days.
You can have it with guarnición (garnish)
2 lb of ripe tomatoes, peeled seeded and chopped
1 cucumber peeled, seeded and chopped
1 thick slice of country bread soaked in water
1 spring onion
1 garlic clove peeled and chopped
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
1/2 cup extra Virgin olive oil
Garnishes ( small amounts)
onion, finely diced
cucumber, peeled and finely diced
green pepper, seeded and finely diced
tomato, seeded and finely diced
In a food processor or blender puree all the ingredients, press mixture through a sieve and chill before serving.
A perfect summer dish !
