Salmorejo Recipe - Famous Spanish Tomato Purée

Salmorejo is a family favourite! People who have never tried Spanish food before will go nuts over this tasty and addictive dipping sauce and side-dish, and the ones who are already familiar with Spanish food will be sure to know exactly how special this simple addition to the Spanish palette is...

What You Need to Know About It

Salmorejo is often confused with Gazpacho but they are worlds apart. Gazpacho is a soup with vegetables, however Salmorejo is a purée with bread. It is comparable to a cream of broccoli soup but there is no cream. 

This purée is best served cold. It is great for summer as it is refreshing.

The key to the Salmorejo is the Sherry vinegar and Olive Oil. This is the critical.

Prep time: 10 minutes


Amounts for 1 Blender (4 cups)
4 tomatoes (Beefsteak, the juicer the better)
1 teaspoon of Sea Salt
2 tablespoons of 1881 Sherry vinegar
¼ cup of 1881 extra virgin olive oil
½ of a large baguette or breadsticks


  1. Blend the 4 large tomatoes. Pour it through a strainer and keep the liquid portion to use to eliminate the chunks.
  2. Add the tomato liquid to the blender, along with the salt, Sherry vinegar and the bread.
  3. As it begins to blend, slowly start putting in the pieces of the bread to start the blending process.
  4. Once you see that the substance is liquified and puréed, slowly add the olive oil while it is blending.
  5. Stop blending once you’ve reached the orange-colour of Salmorejo.
  6. Add more ingredients to taste and preferences. To make the puree thicker, add a little more bread, and more salt if you prefer a saltier taste.
  7. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

The dish looks best served in a white dish or our hand-painted Antonio Artiz serving bowls.
