What do we know about salmorejo? A dish in which, what makes it characteristic today, was not even added years ago. Traditionally the salmorejo was white in color, since its preparation was based on bread, onion, garlic and oil. With the passage of time the tomato was added, and that was when it acquired the color with which we know it today. Córdoba was the place where this combination arose, which today is widespread throughout Spain.
