Easy CSA Gazpacho

Amy Schwemm, Tucson CSA

1 large Armenian cucumber
5 or more (or less!) small tomatoes
1-2 slices of onion, to taste
1 or 2 cloves of garlic, to taste
1 green chile, any kind, or ½ bell pepper (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil, or to taste
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Trim ends off of cucumber and chop coarsely. Trim bruised spots and stem ends off tomatoes. Remove seeds and stems from green chile or bell pepper, if using. Purée all vegetables in a Vita-mix, blender, or food processor, first by adding the garlic, onion, and chile, following with the tomatoes and then the cucumber. Season to taste with oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Chill before serving.
