1. Process celery, tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, garlic, jalapenos, and bread in a food processor until fine. Transfer to a blender along with tomato juice and puree in batches until smooth. Strain and set aside.
2. Make mayonnaise by whisking together egg yolks, paprika, vinegar, and salt in a large bowl. Gradually add olive oil, one drop at a time, whisking constantly until an emulsion forms. (As the mixture thickens, you can begin adding the oil faster.)
3. After mayonnaise is formed, start adding reserved vegetable puree 1/4 at a time, whisking constantly, until thoroughly blended. Adjust with Tabasco and chill for a minimum of 2 hours. Serve in chilled bowls, with a sprinkling of chopped chives.
* Kirbies or Pickling Cucumbers are small, pale green cucumbers with fewer seeds and a milder flavor than larger cucumbers. Available in supermarkets.
