Roughly chop onion, cucumber, tomatoes and garlic. De-seed the capsicum and roughly chop.
Place all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until everything is completely pureed. Since this recipe makes a lot, you will have to liquidise the ingredients in batches, depending on the size of your blender.
Season to taste, and chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
Serve with a splash of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of shredded fresh basil.
