Fresh bread is what gives gazpacho its body, making it a more substantial summer entrée soup. Use bread from the bakery section for the best results (supermarket bread can be overly soft and sweet). A whole-grain sourdough, crusts removed, would be fantastic here, adding just enough tang to round out the other ingredients. Green tomatoes are more tart and less juicy than red tomatoes. If you use red tomatoes, seed a couple first, and add another splash of vinegar. For a vegetarian main, substitute toasted bread cubes and chopped cucumber for the shrimp.
