|What? What's yellow on the picture if you're talking about gaspacho... we all know gaspacho is red, right? The tomato soup from Spain, yes. In Mexico, the gaspacho is totally something else! It's a cold street snack. We could say it's a spicy fruit salad with corn (yes, corn is everywhere in Mexico). No proteins at all in there, but delicious fruits. This is a speciality of Morelia, I haven't seen it before... although there's something that looks (but doesn't taste) like it, as you'll see in my next food publication.|
So, what's in the Mexican gaspacho?
It's a delicious fruit salad mix including mango, pineapple, jicama
and sometimes watermelon, to which they add corn. They then put some
lime juice (of course!) and fill the glass or cup with a juice
(usually orange) then top it with grated Parmesan cheese (or
something very similar) and spices including chamoy. The chamoy used
here is a powder derived from pickled fruits. It's sweet, sour
(very!), salty, umami and spicy all at the same time. A weird party
in your mouth!
It's a refreshing cocktail that comes
in various sizes... and always with a plastic bag around your cup or
container... because it's sure you'll drop some of the fruit bits or
of the juice since the cup is filled to the rim with juice plus way
over the top with fruits.
