Raw Greek Gazpacho

This is a great little recipe I found on line. All those fresh summer veggies, especially if you have some home grown! So easy to make and refreshing. Tastes even better the next day.

3-5 ripe seasonal heirloom tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/2 cucumber, seeded, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 cup or so feta or Gorgonzola cheese, try to find a soft variety
1/4 cup purple onion, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup fresh garden parsley and/or basil
4 Tbsp tomato juice
1 Tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Salt & pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. If you are working with a smaller machine, simply work in batches.

Blend until desired consistency is achieved and season to taste. If you find the soup too thick for your taste, you can adjust by adding a little water, vegetable stock or olive oil, as desired.

Garnish with small pieces of chopped cucumber, onion, feta and olive.

Yummy!
