Celebrating is about sharing, telling stories, talking. It's about eating a piece of cake that a friend made for you, having a glass of wine or savoring a cup of coffee. It's that unknown sensation that doesn't let you get up from the table after eating. It's much more than just placing silverware and plates on a table, it's creating an ambience, a style, a sensation, an unforgettable memory.

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
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 !

I adore gazpacho, but I like mine to be a little chunky so I can bite into the beautiful vegetables. I've never thought about having them as garnishes. It's gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your friend's wonderful recipe.
