Chunky Gazpacho...perfect if you have an abundance of tomatoes and cucumbers!
This time of year I always have extra tomatoes...this is a recipe I love making. I usually make only a half a batch as it is only me. Enjoy!
46 oz can tomato juice (I use low sodium V-8)(recipe only calls for 2-1/3
cup-but I use whole can)
4 Tbls lemon juice
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil (original recipe says 1/2 cup-but I don't use that much)
6 large tomatoes cut up (seed if you want, I don't)
2 cucumbers cut up (seed if you want, I don't)
1 green pepper seeded and cut up
1 onion chopped (I like red onion)
3 stalk celery cut up
2 cloves garlic
hot pepper sauce to taste(I only use a couple of drops)
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients. Gets better after a day of chilling. Yummy!!
You can add parsley if you want-I don't.
