Place tomatoes, pepper, cucumber, onion, garlic, vinegar, oil, hot sauce, and salt in blender or food processor. Cover and process until smooth (you may have to process in two batches). Transfer to a serving bowl, cover, and chill at least two hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend. Sprinkle with vegetable garnish before serving. (Chopped vegetable garnish may be stored in a zip-top bag).
