Ingredients

  • 4 large very ripe tomatoes cored and cut into rough chunks
  • 1 medium cucumber peeled, seeded, and cut into rough chunks
  • 1 medium red onion peeled and cut into rough chunks
  • 1 medium bell pepper (color of your choice), cored, seeded, and cut into rough chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and smashed
  • 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 slices of bread crusts removed torn into rough 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus more for serving

Instructions

  • Place bread pieces in a small bowl.

  • Pour the juices off into the bowl with the bread allowing the bread to soak up the juices.
  • Transfer mixture and bread to processor/blender and pulse for 15-20 seconds depending on your preferred consistency.
  • Remove from blender and put in a large bowl. Taste and add additional seasoning as needed. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Freeze serving bowls during this time as well.
