Directions

In a blender, combine 1 tomato, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 onion, 1/2 diced red pepper , the pimento and 1/2 C. tomato juice. Blend at high speed, covered, for 30 seconds to puree the vegetables. In a large bowl, mix the pureed vegetables with remaining tomato juice, 1/4 C. olive oil, vinegar, red pepper sauce, red wine, salt, minced garlic and ground black pepper. Cover mixture and refrigerate until it is well chilled (about 2 hours). Chop (separately) the remaining tomato, cucumber, red onion and red pepper.
