Gazpacho soup is originating in Andalusia and is widely eaten in Spain and Portugal on hot days, mostly in the summer. It is also sooo refreshing in the morning or when you feel hungry and don’t want to start eating unhealthy food. Make sure you only use the freshest, highest quality ingredients for this soup. But gazpacho is not only a fresh side dish. It can actually be combined with your favorite snack! You can use the soup for a nice Nacho dish when you have guests or just as a side savory dish for the drinks on a Friday night. What do you say?
