“The perfect summer soup. This receipe is adapted from "James McNair's favorites" (more garlic, the addition of sugar and lemon)... and is very very nice. I was attempting to make enough for a couple of meals but we found this so delicious, we ate all of the would-be left-over's as well. Enjoy!!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the tomatoes, onion, pepper and cucumber.
  2. Stir in the shallot, garlic, vinegar, sugar, lemon juice, and olive oil.
  3. Use a blender or food processor to puree.
  4. I like this better if it is a bit chunky but puree according to taste.
  5. Pour this mixture into a bowl.
  6. Season with salt and pepper according to taste.
  7. Let this mixture sit in the refrigerator for any thing from a couple of hours to a day (better).

  10. I like to serve this with cheesy garlic bread.
