Why I Love This Recipe

I spend a summer studying in Spain when I was in college; this is one of the recipes I brought home from that amazing trip.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 14-oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 small onion, chopped (I like Vidalia onions)
1 11-oz. can corn, drained
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large cucumber, chopped
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
24 oz. tomato based vegetable juice (V-8)
garnish: croutons


For chunkier soup, hand chop onion and cucumber.

For smoother soup, chop onion and cucumber in food processor.

Dump all ingredients except garnish in large mixing bowl.

Stir well and chill at least 3 hours to combine flavors.

Ladle into bowls and garnish.

*Note: I have used the diced tomatoes with jalapeno for a spicy kick.

I've also garnished this with 3 or 4 cooked shrimp per bowl, but that makes it non-vegetarian.
