Refreshing summer soup. Really easy to make.
Definitely use a low sodium tomato juice.
This was a great recipe. Did change ingredients somewhat...and also method of preparation..and was delicious. Eliminated: Mushrooms, celery, parsley and chives. Changed 3 cups tomato juice to 4 cups of Low Sodium V-8. Did not have tarragon vinegar..so used 1 tsp tarragon .and more to taste at the end...and 1/2 cup white vinegar. Used one red pepper and a few sweet green banana peppers instead of green bell peppers. In cuisinart, put garlic cut into 7 or 8 chunks, 2 cups of fresh tomatoes , chopped, black pepper, tabasco, worcestershire sauce, white vinegar, tarragon spice, 1/2 cups of the V-8 juice and pureed. Then , to a large bowl, poured in the cuisinart mixture, remaining V-8 juice,chopped up onion, cucumber, and peppers. Delicious!!! Barbara Aceti Woodinville, Washington
