To make croutons, preheat to 400. Place the bread on a baking sheet, Drizzle butter over bread, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat evenly. Bake 10-15 minutes.  

To make the salsa, in a small bowl, stir together cherry tomatoes, serrano chile, green onion, garlic, cilantro, and lime juice. Set aside until ready to serve.   Ladle the gazpacho into bowls, garnish with the croutons and a spoonful of the salsa and serve.
