Gazpacho is a typical Andalusian dish, which has become a classic of Spanish cuisine. It is a quick recipe to make, economically affordable and above all delicious; Even more in summer. Still not easy to prepare.
I’m not exactly an expert on gazpachos, but I saw in La Principal there was a gazpacho contest, and I thought “I like to cook, and I’m good at inventing: let’s try something different.” And that I did: with some tomatoes, some cherries and some mozzarella I prepared a fresh and original gazpacho, which won the EXPERIMENTAL GAZPACHO prize.
If you want to try a more traditional version of gazpacho, you can find it here.
