Another dish from the gathering I went to last night. I was like salsa soup!


Warning: this is not so much a recipe as it is a list of ingredients with very relative percentages.

Equipment: Large glass or plastic bowl or tupperware containerCuisinartCutting Board and Knife
Ripe tomatoes
Onions/ScallionsCucumbers (remove seeds)
Green Peppers
Jalapeno Pepper
V-8 or Tomato Juice
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Oregano
Lemon and/or Lime Juice
Red Wine Vinegar
Chop green peppers by hand into a very fine dice.Chop all other veggies in Cuisinart until finely diced.Toss everything into large bowl and add V-8 or Tomato Juice, Lemon and/or Lime Juice, Red Wine Vinegar and oil. For best results, mix well and let sit in the fridge for a few hours, then taste. Add other spices as needed to taste.

Serve garnished with any combination of hot sauce, sour cream, chopped cilantro, croutons or veggies slices.

Yummmmmmmmm! !!!!! This is excellent on hot summer days! Depending upon which juice you add, the salt content may be a little high, but other than that, it's about as healthy a dish as you can make!
