The soup we know as gazpacho originated in Spain's southern region of Andalusia. Farm harvesters traditionally prepared their lunches in the fields by pounding garlic, stale bread, water, olive oil, and salt in a large wooden bowl, forming a sort of nourishing paste to which they added cold water. Legend maintains that Christopher Columbus took barrels of this paste on his first voyage to the New World. Discovering tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers in the Andes, he added them to the mix, creating the liquid salad we still call gazpacho. From "The Florida Keys Cookbook". Prep/Cook time DOES NOT include overnight refrigeration time.
