  • 1.5 pounds tomatoes, roughly chopped & core removed
  • 1 red pepper, roughly chopped & seeds removed
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled & roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable cocktail 
  • 1/2-1 tsp kosher salt, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes & Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh Parsley 
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5-3 tbsp red wine vinegar, to taste
1. Add tomatoes, pepper, cucumber, onion, garlic clove, lime juice, V8 (or tomato juice), olive oil, and herbs into a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Now add the rest of the seasonings (salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, vinegar) slowly and adjust to taste.
3. Chill for 2-4 hours, or overnight.
4. Garnish with chopped peppers, green onion, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil just before serving.
Note: If your blender is small you might have to cut this batch in half so it won’t overflow. I made mine in the Vitamix and it just fit. Makes about 6.5 cups.
