Hi! Nice recipe, just wanted to add that usually we make gazpacho mixing red and green bell peppers so it doesn't end up being so red, also some fresh onion. Usually the proportion is a bit more peppers than cucumbers. And if you opt for the bread version i recommend to add first the vinegar to the breadcrumbs so it soaks in the flavour then add the rest of the veggies :) Greetings from Spain!
