In the hottest time of the year the only thing can help you against heat - the most famous Spanish cold soup gazpacho!
Gazpacho is made from mashed tomatoes, cucumbers, olive oil, garlic, onions and vinegar. This is a very popular not only in Spain but also outside the cold soup, which is perfectly refreshing on a hot summer.
The original dish for the poor, gazpacho quickly became popular among wealthy Spaniards, and in 2013 this soup was served even to the royal family of Spain in wooden plates.
The soup is usually served separately and vegetable mixture is brought into a gravy boat and you can put as much as you need.
Some restaurants are experimenting with the ingredients of gazpacho. Often you can find even a strawberry gazpacho.
