Gazpacho is tomato soup, served cold that hails from the Andalusia region of Spain. The thought of eating ice cold tomato soup at first may appear strange, especially for those from the United States that grew up with grilled cheese sandwiches and hot tomato soup as the cure for the winter chills. However, this dish is both traditional, and delicious.
The classic version of the dish features tomatoes, bell peppers, olive oil, garlic, salt and vinegar. This version adds ginger and more vegetables, making it perfect for summer when the days are hot and the produce are in season.
