- Chop all vegetables finely, using veggies that are not overripe.
- Mix vegetables, both oils, vinegar, tomato juice, & lemon juice in a large bowl. Taste for needed salt.
- Refrigerate for a few hours to chill & allow the flavors to meld together. Gets better as time goes on.
- Ladle it out! Good for two more days (veggies will turn soft after that).
