978 per serving
- 2 pounds ripe tomatoes
- 1 cucumber
- 1 green pepper
- 1 small onion or half onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 slice bread, crust removed
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 teaspoons red/white wine or sherry vinegar, to taste, can limit to 3 tsp. if desired
Peel and quarter the cucumber, remove the green pepper innards and cut into several pieces, peel and quarter the onion, peel the garlic clove and slice in two, soak the bread in a few tablespoons of water, and toss it all into your Kenmore blender! Add the olive oil and vinegar, and season to taste. If it's too thick, you can add more olive oil or even water. It should be zesty from the vinegar, and a bit of salt will help bring out the flavors. Refrigerate for a while, until chilled, and you're ready to go!
If you like, cut up some extra tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, green or red peppers into small cubes to use as a garnish - along with croutons for added texture. You can swirl a bit of olive oil or vinegar over the individual bowls for effect, or toss a green olive on top.
