This is a cold, summertime soup which originated from southern Spain, in the Andalusia region. Although recipes differ, it is usually made from a mixture of fresh tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, onions, celery, cucumber, bread crumbs, garlic, olive oil, vinegar and sometimes lemon juice. This can be served as a meal in itself, espeically when extra fresh vegetables such as sliced celery, green onion, cucumber and green pepper are added. Croutons and diced eggs are the most frequent garnishes.

DIRECTIONS

Combine all ingredients. Chill for 4 hours.
