Also known as Malagan Gazpacho, this no-cook "salad in a bowl" is ideal for hot weather. Healthy, colorful, refreshing perfection."At 6 pm tonight, it was 108 degrees here, and believe me, there was NOTHING on this earth I wanted to cook my family for dinner. I just whipped up a batch of this soup in 20 minutes, no cooking, and it is delicious! It is chilling a bit more now, because I think tonight my family is going to want dinner "extra cold"! Thanks for the great recipe. We've got a nice loaf of chewy bread to go with this, and some cold beer. Can't wait to sit down and cool off! " - stoniest13

Gazpacho Andaluz Preparation
If bread is a bit stale, soak in some water for a bit to soften, then squeeze dry; tear softened bread into large pieces. Mix all ingredients together well, using hands or a large rubber spatula. In two batches, puree the mix in blender, adding approximately 1 c. of the water to each batch. Chill thoroughly, and serve VERY COLD!!
Traditional garnishes include finely chopped cucumber, onion, bell peppers, garlic croutons, and chopped hard-boiled egg. Serve as condiments alongside the gazpacho; a large dollop of sour cream or creme fraiche atop each bowl of soup is also nice.

This delectable Spanish soup freezes beautifully, so make several batches in tomato season and freeze for consumption on cold, tomato-less winter days.
