Ingredients

3 biggish tomatoes, cored and diced (Use heirlooms if you are feeling fancy, but if you do, strive for color contrast)

2 small or one big cucumber, intermittently peeled for tiger-stripe effect, and diced

2 red, yellow, or orange bell peppers, diced (Again, contrast is good to have here)

1/2 Vidalia onion, or other sweet onion, finely diced

2 cloves garlic, minced (Put the press back in the drawer, Mr. Speedy)

Salt, to taste

4 to 6 cups tomato juice (It is worth at least springing for the kind that comes in glass)

1/4 cup sherry vinegar (Do not be tempted to substitute. If you want to fool with cider vinegar and Liquid Smoke, you are on your own)

Tabasco to taste (Again, here, accept no substitute. Also, if your personal Tabasco has turned gray, start over.)

Lots of ground black pepper to taste (If you do not own a decent peppermill, get one. They can be had for not much money, and there is no single kitchen item that can do more to create the illusion of civility.)

Fancy olive oil (optional)
