Directions

In a blender combine one tomato, half the cucumber, half the onion, a green bell pepper qt.er, 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, salt and ground black pepper. Cover mixture and refrigerate until it is well chilled (about 2 hours). At the same time, refrigerate 6 serving bowls. Meanwhile sauté the croutons in oil and add the garlic. Chop (separately) the remaining tomato, cucumber, onion and green bell pepper. Place the croutons and each of these chopped vegetables in separate bowls to serve as accompaniments. Serve soup in chilled bowls. Just before serving time, sprinkle with chopped chives for garnish.
