In the hot summer months, there is nothing more refreshing than a cold ‘Gazpacho’ or ‘Salmorejo’, two of the most typical dishes of southern Spanish cuisine.
What do you prefer, ‘Gazpacho‘ or ‘Salmorejo’ ? To get this out, try both dishes. For your culinary discovery, we will naturally offer you the most charming accommodations in Andalusia.
Here the differences of both specialties….
Both have their origin in Andalusia, with the same basic ingredients tomato, garlic, bread or oil. These are `cold soups´ with an appetizing red color, resulting from the pigmentation of the tomato.
Some prefer `Gazpacho´, others `Salmorejo´, because of their different preparation and refinement:
Here are two recipes – for the authentic Salmorejo Cordobés (cradle of Salmorejos) and the Gazpacho, which contains different vegetables depending on the region in Spain. The main difference between the two recipes: Gazpacho is refined with diverse vegetables, Salmorejo is distinguished by its pure tomato taste.
