Ingredients

Pictured here is all you will need: two *tomatoes, two white onions two cucumbers, one and a half green bell peppers, two cloves of garlic, 100g of sliced bread, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, cumin, and ice cubes.

*Alvaro says you can also improvise and substitute the tomatoes for watermelon, which sounds delicious.

The Preparation

Start by cutting your vegetables. No need to worry about uniformly sized chunks. Don't worry about tomato seeds and skin either. This is all going into a food processor, so it doesn't really matter. Also, be sure to set aside a small portion of tomato to dice up. You'll need it for a garnish later.
