This is a favorite summer soup.


  • 4 medium tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 ribs celery, quartered
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup cold water or 1/2 cup vegetable juice cocktail
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Sour Cream


Core and seed 1 tomato. Chop fine; set aside.

Combine all the remaining ingredients except the sour cream in a blender or food processor. Blend only a few seconds, until the vegetables are finely chopped and well mixed. The soup should not be smooth.

Add the reserved chopped tomato; chill.

Serve very cold, topped with sour cream.
