Here is my favorite from the NYTimes Bread and Soup Cookbook 1972. I make it and keep it in

a pitcher in the fridge at all times in the summer.

4 C cold canned tomato juice (try to find Campbells)
3 C undiluted COLD canned beef consomme (not broth)
1/4 t. or to taste, Tobasco
4 T olive oil
1 teasp salt
juice of 1 lemon
3 T wine vinegar
4 large ice cubes
4 large tomatoes peeled and seeded
4 garlic cloves peeled
2 large cukes
2 large green peppers, pith and seeds removed (I only use one, I don't like peppers very much)
10 green onions plus chives
1/2 C parsley minced. ( I often omit)

Place tom juice, tabasco,olive oil, salt, lemon juice, garlic cloves and ice cubes in blender. Blend for 1 minute.

The recipe goes on to say that you should chop the rest and serve it for garnish to the soup. I put it all in the blender together and make gazacho. I think the consomme is the secret in this recipe. Delicious. Try it.
