Soak the slices of bread in cold water. When tender, squeeze the bread to express the water. In a food processor puree until smooth the almonds, pepper, cucumbers, vinegar, sugar, scallions and olive oil. Slowly add the ice water until you reach the consistency you like; season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill, covered, until serving time; garnish with cucumber, chives and bell pepper.
