This is a great hot summer day meal.  A fresh, cold soup is just what you need when the sun is beating down.  All of the veggies can easily be chopped in a food processor if you want to bring the soup together faster.  This is a great make ahead meal and will stay fresh in the fridge for a few days.


1 lb Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 English/Hothouse cucumber, seeded and diced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 bell peppers, diced
2 tbsp fresh basil, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine or champagne vinegar
3 cups low sodium tomato or vegetable juice
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced (optional)
Dash of hot sauce (optional)

Garnishes (optional):
Sour cream, goat cheese, diced jalapeno, diced cucumber for garnish


1.  Combine all ingredients other than garnish(es) into a large bowl.  Mix well, cover, and refrigerate until chilled completely.  Serve and garnish as desired.  Enjoy!

Bon Appetit!
