anyone have a recipe to share? i'm looking for a tomatoey cucumbery one.
Hi there- I live in Spain and this is my favorite gazpacho to make when the weather is hot. It is like a Cordoban Salmorejo, in the sense that it doesn't have water and it is thickened with bread crumbs. Also, I like my gazpacho chunky so I only puree some of the ingredients. You can puree more if you like it smoother!

I like to serve a steak or ribs with this meal, and crusty bread.
I learned from Sam to deseed cukes for gazpacho. So easy. Peel, slice lengthwise, one scrape with a teaspoon for a seedless cuke canoe.
Just made 1st batch of the season. I used Mark Bittman's "Simple Gazpacho" recipe - using two cucumbers instead of one and adding a bunch of cilantro. I'll know better in the morning if it turned out well and how it compares to my standard recipe. But the initial taste test was yummy!
Here's the recipe I used: http://markbittman.com/sunday-supper-...
