DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the vegetables in chunks. If you like, you can skin the tomatoes but it isn't necessary.
  • Process all the vegetables in a blender in small batches with tomato juice and olive oil until you have a thick puree. Add tomato juice and oil with every batch to provide plenty of liquid.
  • For the last batch, soak bread in warm water, squeeze out excess water, add the bread and blend well.
  • Pour it all into a bowl or, like I do, a pitcher and add the vinegar and lime juice.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and cumin.
  • Mix well.
  • Chill in refrigerator until very cold.
  • Just before serving, garnish with all or any combination of the listed garnishes if you wish. The Italian in me likes a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
