Gazpacho with vinegar pearls: a summer delight

The gazpacho is a light and fresh dish typical of Spain. It is a cream of vegetables very adapted for the summer.

Like many traditional recipes, there are many different versions of gazpacho, some more traditional and some more creative. For example, last year, I create a recipe for gazpacho with cherries that took the Gazpacho Experimental prize in the contest of gazpachos in La Principal.

Today I propose a simpler version with a more traditional flavor, accompanied by pearls of balsamic vinegar and mint leaves.

Leave me your opinion in the comments 😉
