I made this using the suggested ingredients. It's very tasty. I don't have a blender so had to use what I have (a mini chopper) which made it quite fussy since I had to blend many batches. There was also a lot of "stuff" when I strained the gazpacho - probably because of not having a good blender.
Next time I'll probably leave the bread out or cut way back on it. And will probably not strain it. Definitely worth making again.
Loved this Gazpacho. I added a few other ingredients: yellow and orange peppers, yellow cherry tomatoes. I also changed some of the ingredients: used Salvadoran cream instead, yellow onion, and red wine vinegar instead. I omitted the bread completely because we eat gluten-free and didn't add grapes. It was delicious.
