First you will have to clean and chop the tomatoes, green peppers, garlic, cucumbers (salt them) and the onion.
Chop the bread and add it to the bowl with the other ingredient. Mix and let it sit, covered, in the refridgerator overnight.
The next day, grind it by hand with a little water. Add the salt, vinegar and oil slowly, checking the texture and taste. Once everything is crushed, pass it through a strainer to remove any lumps.
To prepare some whole veggies to go into the gazpacho, just chop up the same veggies that you used for the mixture into very small pieces, and add them to the final soup.
Gazpacho is best served as a first course, very cold... Delicious! ;)
