This is a very tasty and simple dish to make at home, and perfect for hot summer days. It is quick, easy and delicious. The dish utilises the whole mango, even the skin, which is usually discarded.

Gazpacho is one of the most famous traditional Spanish recipes, and is usually made with Mediterranean ingredients such as tomatoes, garlic, onion, red peppers, olive oil and vinegar. This one is very different, as it has a technical complexity and a greater conceptual depth, but there are connections to traditional gazpacho, such as the use of vinegar as one of the main ingredients. It gives acidity, character and potency to this chilled soup.
