Recipe Notes

  • Not traditional, but I like to garnish the soup with roughly chopped cucumbers, tomatoes or chunks of avocado for a twist.
  • If you don't have sherry vinegar, try red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar or your favorite variety.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Soak the bread in half of the olive oil until moist. In a blender or food processor, combine tomatoes, pepper, cucumber, onion and garlic. If necessary, work in batches. Blitz at high speed until smooth, at least 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add the vinegar and 2 teaspoons salt with the motor running. Add the bread. Slowly drizzle in the remaining olive oil. The mixture will become smooth and emulsified.  
  3. Transfer to a large glass container, cover and chill until very cold, at least 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.
  4. Before serving, adjust the seasonings with salt, pepper and a splash of vinegar. If the soup is too thick, stir in a few tablespoons of ice water. Serve in chilled glasses or a bowl with a few drops of olive oil to garnish.
