Cold soup (no stove)

Top Review by Burnt by Dad

I used lo-fat chicken stock, canned diced tomatoes and red wine vinegar rather than water, fresh tomatoes and plain white vinegar. This soup turned out to be greasy, the vinegar was overpowering and the soup was very thin. If I make this again, I'll leave out half the oil, 3/4 of the vinegar and half the water.
