    Delicious and easy peasy recipe. I didnt find it too garlic-heavy, it was only one small garlic clove. Great cold soup.

    I love Gazpacho...well, I'm from Spain. Just a little suggestion about the recipe: this soup is from the south of Spain, not from La Mancha, where the manchego cheese is original. In Andalusia people take Gazpacho with croutons, chopped tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, even with some serrano ham, but never with cheese....
