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!
