  • 1 hothouse cucumber, halved and seeded, but not peeled, roughly chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored and seeded, roughly chopped
  • 4 plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups tomato juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup good olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Using a food processor with a steal blade, coarsely chop each vegetable separately.
  2. Make sure to NOT over-process!
  3. After each vegetable is chopped, combine them into a large bowl.
  4. Stir in garlic, tomato juice, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well and chill before serving. It’s best to allow the flavors to chill and marry overnight.
