Green gazpacho is made the same way as the original Spanish gazpacho recipe with the absence of tomatoes and the addition of a few extra vegetables. Sour cream is also used in this recipe to add a fresh flavour to the soup. For this recipe we decided to serve with rolled slices of Serrano ham, achieve the right consistency and you can dip your ham in the soup, a great combination of flavours with the mild saltiness of the Serrano (or Iberico) ham and the cold vegetable gazpacho. Serve chilled for a real summer treat in glasses or bowls.
