4 vine ripe tomatoes, skin removed and chopped
1/2 cucumber, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/4c red wine vinegar
1/4c olive oil
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder (we love bolners fiesta brand)
2 c zing zang bloody mary mix
6-46 dashes of tabasco
prep all your ingredients. Put them all in a bowl. add more of what you like and less of what you don’t. mix well.
cover and put in fridge for at least a couple hours – these folks need to spend time getting to know each other in the bowl.
when ready to serve, you can serve as-is or puree half of it in blender and pour it back in the bowl. Gives it a more soup-like texture but with some chunks. serve in a bowl with dollop of sour cream, some croutons and chopped scallions.
