Spain is famous for its almonds and locals put them to good use in this chilled summer soup. It's called Ajo Blanco con Uvas and is made with freshly crushed almonds, breadcrumbs, lots of garlic, olive oil and vinegar. Peeled grapes and water are added before serving.
Use a medium canteloupe melon instead of grapes, sliced into bite sized pieces.
Have made this several times and love it. I do add a few more cloves of garlic though and eat the lot myself. - 01 Feb 2010
Very nice, refreshing soup. Definately a pleasant surprise. If you like almonds, this is quite tasty. - 12 Sep 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Sweet, rich, indulgent. Tasted great, looked spectacular. Would make again -- hope it impresses! (I layered as per CHRISTINE1906, and mixed 1/4c of the white sugar in with the brown as per BROWNIEBAKER). See pic. - 28 Jun 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
