I used to make this recipe by chopping up everything separate and it took alot of time. Now I throw it all in the blender and I like it better and it takes minutes. This is a delicious refreshing healthy soup. Serve it as cold as possible. In a blender briefly mix 1 -10 1/2 oz can beef broth, 2 1/2 cups V-8 juice, 3 tbsp lemon juice 2 tbsp chopped green onion, 2 chopped garlic cloves (use the kind in the jar), 2 tbsp hot sauce, 1 cup green pepper, 1 cup cucumber, 1 cup tomato and salt and pepper. Don’t over blend. Keep it chunky. You can serve this in individual bowls or in shot glasses placed in a tray of ice. Perfect for entertaining. This soup will help you fit into your bathing suit this summer.
