White Gazpacho with Grapes and Toasted Almonds

Ingredients

  • 2 large English cucumbers (or 3 large regular cucumbers), peeled and roughly chopped 3 slices white bread, crusts removed
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 6 scallions, whites only, divided
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar or Sherry vinegar, plus more, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • ¼ cup plus 4 teaspoons slivered almonds, lightly toasted, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt, plus more, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup green grapes, halved

Method

Set aside 1 cup of chopped cucumber for a garnish. Soak the bread in water until soft, about 2 minutes. Place soaked bread, the rest of the cucumber, garlic, 3 of the scallions, vinegar, lemon juice, 1/4 cup of the almonds, salt and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in the bowl of a food processor and process until cucumbers are completely blended and liquid and almonds are almost completely invisible, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with additional salt and vinegar, if desired.
To serve, ladle 1 cup gazpacho into a bowl. Mound 1/4 cup reserved chopped cucumber, 1 tablespoon scallions, 2 tablespoons grapes and 1 teaspoon almonds in the center of the soup.
