The heat is coming and with it one of the freshest foods in our Mediterranean diet; the Salmorejo. A cold soup or thick cream that is eaten alone or accompanied by small pieces of boiled egg and iberian ham. It can be prepared by mashing the ingredients patiently in a mortar, or with the help of a blender or a kitchen robot. Although some people add extra ingredients to those we are going to list, the traditional recipe is made only with tomatoes, bread, salt, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Let’s go there!
