    1. My favorite gazpacho recipe is by James Beard in The Theory and Practice of Good Cooking. I couldn't find the recipe on line.

      1. A little off the beaten path is a watermelon gazpacho - it's killer.

        If you google a recipe, you'll find one for sure. I add some extra fresh herbs to the fray to kick it up a little

          For my gazpacho (watermelon version) there is definitely no bread in it, and the vinegar is sherry vinegar.

          Don't knock it until you've tried it.

        2. America's test kitchen just recently had a video on the subject on their site ~ it was quite delicious.

          1. In my opinion, it should be made with green pepper, cucumber, tomato, onion, garlic, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and a slice of bread. I prefer the traditional way more than any other kind!!

            Whichever you choose, gazpacho REALLY needs that slice of bread blended in. It makes the texture so much better and adds a certain flavor.

              Now see this is where it all becomes a matter of taste, because I *hate* when people put bread into gazpacho. I tend to treat it as pureed salsa: a couple of tomatoes, some onion, red pepper, garlic, apple cider vinegar & a little olive oil...puree till soup consistency, then fold in finely chopped green pepper & red onion. A small dollop of low fat sour cream and it's a tasty, healthy treat!
