  • Yield: Makes 2 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
  • Total: 10 Minutes
  • Chill: 1 Hour


  • 1 pound ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • About 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped basil
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 or 4 Persian cucumbers, quartered lengthwise and chopped


Whirl everything except cucumbers together in a food processor until soup is the texture you like, about 15 seconds for a salsa-like purée. Chill to let flavors develop, at least 1 hour and up to 2 days, adding more salt if desired. Garnish with chopped cucumber.
