...And before you start leaping to conclusions, the circumstances requiring the liquid diet (namely the other two wisdom teeth) preclude the consumption of bourbon and other alcoholic treats! Thus we (painfully) arrive at the soup du jour:
(Note the pureed version I'm getting, tastefully packaged!)
1 Red Onion, minced
2 large Sweet Red Peppers, minced (Not Bell Peppers. The ones I used are mild, with just a small amount of heat.)
1 Tbs Cilantro, minced
1 Cucumber, peeled and finely diced
8-9 large fresh Roma tomatoes, pureed
Juice of three Limes (I used two regular Limes, and two Key Limes, which are sweeter.)
1 large Avocado, diced
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, stir well and chill before serving. Serves 4-6, depending on serving size.
My mom noted that it was even more phenomenal when topped with Minneola segments (Tangerine-like citrus), and a little lemon juice.
Cream of Asparagus for dinner...
