2 1/2 pounds red tomatoespeeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 3/4 pounds kirby cucumbers, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 small red onion, chopped
5 tablespoons chopped basil
5 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Salt and freshly ground pepper
6 ounces fresh goat cheese, softened
12 sugar snap peas, halved
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
3 radishes, thinly sliced
1/2 Hass avocado, cut into 1/2-inch dice
In a large bowl, toss the chopped tomatoes with the cucumbers, tomato juice, olive oil, lemon juice, onion and 3 tablespoons each of the basil and cilantro. Working in batches, puree the vegetables in a blender. Pour the soup into another large bowl, season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until chilled.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, blend the goat cheese with the remaining 2 tablespoons each of basil and cilantro and season with salt and pepper.
In a small saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the sugar snaps until just tender, about 1 minute. Drain and refresh under cold water, then pat dry and halve.
Ladle the soup into shallow bowls and spoon a dollop of herbed goat cheese into the center of each. Garnish with the sugar snaps, cherry tomatoes, radishes and avocado and serve.
