Meowlissa's Gazpacho Salsa Accidental Goodness



An awesome fellow Ginger and a fellow Melissa recommended her mother-in-law's Andalusian Gazpacho recipe. Not having much of a cooking prowess these days, I didn't know if I would actually rock this or not. I decided to put my own spin on it, not make it soup and here is my end result. I have to say, it put the Badass in awesome. Really.



Meowlissa's  Gazpacho Salsa

(The original recipe includes ALL juices from bottles, cans, etc. and called for 3 or 4 large cans of chopped tomatoes but I totally cheated here and only used 1 can of tomatoes, 1 Cup of v8 and about a half can of olive juice)

I large red onion, diced
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 jar roasted red pepper pieces
1 large can chopped tomatoes (or 3 1/2 cups fresh)
1 large cucumber, diced
4 scallions
1-2 cloves garlic, diced or crushed
½ cup olive oil
½ cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp Cumin
1 T Basil
1 T Parsley
1 -2 teaspoons pepper (to taste)
2 teaspoons salt
several dashes Tabasco (to taste)
1 Cup V-8 (original or spicy)
1 cup red wine (optional)

 Add at least:
1 bottle salad olives
1 can sliced black olives
 Mix all the ingredients together, Chill for 4 hours. Will keep for a couple of weeks . Can also be frozen for later use.
