Add more of the other ingredients--bell peppers, cucumber.

This has happened to me before - agree on adding more of the other ingredients (especially bread if you are using that as a thickener). I also find that adding a bit more sherry vinegar and then letting it sit in the fridge for a little while mellows out and balances the garlic.

I would add bread as well. You might look up a white gazpacho recipe and replicate the technique.

Or just drink a couple shots of vodka and you won't care so much!

And next time add the salt at the very end, after you've tasted everything else.
