The Gazpacho was originally a recipe designed to seize the day-old bread and prepared with little more than bread, garlic, salt, oil and vinegar. Later pepper and tomato finally was included.
Who wants to prepare an authentic Gazpacho Andaluz will have to use only these ingredients .. Although my recipe does not take bread and this may seem counterintuitive because the Gazpacho as I said was basically bread, I choose to remove it, since it is so much lighter and refreshing and today that is what is sought when preparing gazpacho in summer
Onion and cucumber are not part of the original recipe but for my taste give a great point.
If you do not have time to cool gazpacho and die for taking the chilled gazpacho can add some ice in the glass that you serve and let cool slightly. Aguará is just a little and you take a good fresh gazpacho without having to wait 2 hours
You can also add ice directly to the pitcher but if you’re not going to take all the time if enough gazpacho gazpacho aguará when all the ice melts.
