Blender Salad Soup
Similar to gazpacho, but with all the vegetables chopped together, making it much easier to prepare.
Quarter tomatoes; seed and slice green pepper; peel and slice onion and cucumber;
- 4 medium-sized ripe tomatoes
- 1/2 large green pepper
- 1/2 small onion
- 1 small cucumber
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup ice water
- 6 ice cubes
Place vegetables and remaining ingredients except ice in a blender or food processor
and blend for about 3 seconds, until vegetables are finely chopped but not reduced to puree.
Spoon soup into bowls and place an ice cube in each so it becomes very cold.
