Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

1 cup finely chopped peeled tomatoes

1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper

1/2 cup finely chopped celery

1/2 cup finely chopped peeled cucumber

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

2 tsp finely chopped or snipped fresh parsley

2 tsp chopped or snipped chives

1 small clove garlic, minced

2-1/2 tblsp wine vinegar

2 tblsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground pepper

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2 cup tomato juice (see below)


Make in the morning to serve as an evening meal on particularly sultry days.

Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and stir to mix. Cover and chill thoroughly several hours. Serve in chilled cups. Makes 6 servings.

When I do this recipe, I take fresh chopped tomatoes and push them through a strainer to remove seeds and skin, enough to get 2 cups of tomato juice. You can use canned tomato juice or V-8, but the "fresh squeezed" tomato juice to be a great addition to all the other fresh ingredients.

I also use balsamic vinegar in place of wine vinegar to increase the depth and complexity of flavor.

I usually double or triple this recipe and have a big bowl of it chilling in the fridge and use it all week, especially for kunch. It gets way better as the flavors blend over several days.

This is a GREAT soup!
