Authentic Gazpacho - Southern Spain

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by mezemills_13118425

Being from southern Spain myself I am always taken aback a little when I see recipes for Gazpacho that ask you to use tomato juice, parsley, sometimes cilantro, hot sauce, etc. I would like to share with you the simple, authentic, centuries old recipe for this fantastic, super healthy, flavorful dish. The one variation that is widely accepted to this recipe is the use of blenders versus the mortar and pestle of yesteryear. I hope you enjoy. Cook's note: I subscribe to South Beach Diet regime so I omit the bread but feel free to add a few ounces to yours if you like

LOVE this recipe!! I too must agree that making it with tomato juice/sauce should be against cooking law!! Lived in southern Spain for many years and it was ALWAYS made with fresh tomatos. Celery, tabasco or cilantro in Gazpacho are definite no, nos. Thank for sharing such a delicious and simple recipe. :-)
