There are only 70 calories in a cup of this chilled crimson side-dish soup. That's because it's made mostly with tomatoes and other fresh vegetables.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the soup, tomato juice, water, chopped cucumber, chopped tomato, chopped green pepper, chopped onion, white wine vinegar, olive oil (if you like), salad dressing, lemon juice, garlic, black pepper, hot-pepper sauce, and Worcestershire. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.
To serve, ladle soup into chilled bowls or mugs. Top each serving with cucumber slices and basil sprigs, if you like. Makes 6 side-dish servings.
Prepare soup up to 24 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.
