This was an awesome Gazpacho! I made it exactly as written and the only thing I would change is to pass on the ice cubes. They make a nice presentaion but I didn't want them to water the soup down so I fished them out after taking a picture. I loved the crunch of the garnishes and croutons against the sliky mouth feel of the soup. Very easy, very, very flavourful. It's a winner in this house!
