It may seem incredible but it took me five years living in Spain to prepare my first Gazpacho... Perhaps because it is almost 11 o'clock in the evening and there are still 30 degrees outside...

You will need (for 4 people):

6 ripe tomatoes
40 g of peeled cucumber
50 g red pepper clean
1/2 slice of bread
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
70 ml of olive oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 peeled onion
2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
100 ml water

Peel the garlic, removing the germ (inner part) and clarify three times starting always with cold water. Mince the onion, cucumber, red pepper, tomatoes, bread, garlic and water. Add olive oil, vinegar and mayonnaise. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Mix well and store in refrigerator.

Serve as a cold soup with croutons, or as starter in a shot glass...
