Gazpacho Friday, July 27, 2012
4 medium tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 of a medium cucumber, seeded and chopped
1 small green sweet pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 12-ounce can reduced-sodium vegetable juice cocktail
2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 TBSP olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Stir together the tomato, cucumber, sweet pepper, green onion, garlic, vegetable juice cocktail, vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Cover and chill up to 6 hours.
This is very good with thin slices of cucumber floated on top. It is also good with some sour cream dolloped on the top. Finally, you might want to pass a nice bottled hot sauce to liven up the flavor.
