(from The Old Farmers Almanac)

Yield: 8 servings
  • 2 medium-size beefsteak tomatoes
  • 1 small Vidalia onion
  • 1/2 English cucumber
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 2 scallions
  • 4 cups tomato juice
  • 1 cup V8 juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Garnish
  • Herbed sour cream

Core tomatoes, then cut them in half crosswise to expose seeds. Gently squeeze out the seeds. Dice the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, bell pepper, and scallions. Stir together with remaining ingredients -- except garnish-- and refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours.
Ladle the soup into serving bowls and decorate each with a dollop of Herbed Sour Cream, 2 cherry-tomato halves, and 3 golden-tomato wedges. Top with a sprig of cilantro and serve.
