Refreshing Cucumber Soup

I had planned to make my Easiest Ever Gazpacho soup, but realized I didn't have any salsa.  So I created this soup instead as a quick and tasty way to get some fresh vegetables.  It also helped use up leftovers from the vegetable tray served on Father's Day yesterday. I needed to add the V8 juice to provide enough liquid for the blender to handle it well.  Lucky for me, I had some in the cupboard.  

1 small can (5.5 oz) low-sodium V8 Juice
2 cups peeled and chunked cucumber (about 1 1/2 large cucumbers)
1 cup diced celery
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
6 cherry tomatoes

Pour the juice into the blender first, then add the cucumber and puree.  Add remaining ingredients and process till desired consistency is obtained.
