"This refreshing soup originates from Spain and is served ice cold. The base of the soup is made with fresh tomatoes, cucumber and peppers. For a smoother soup, puree more than half of the vegetables. If you prefer it chunky - don't puree them at all. It's even better if you can leave this soup overnight to allow the flavors to develop." — by Amy
