Salmorejo is a cream consisting of tomato and bread, originating in Córdoba (Andalusia) in the south of Spain. It is made from tomatoes, bread, oil, garlic and vinegar. Normally, the tomatoes are skinned and then puréed with the other ingredients. The soup is served cold and garnished with diced Spanish Serrano ham and diced hard-boiled eggs.
It has a pink-orange appearance like gazpacho, but salmorejo is much thicker, because it includes more bread. In Andalusia it is known by several other names, including ardoria. Several variations of Salmorejo exist in Andalucia.
