Ok so I had some of this over the weekend and it was surprisingly good.

Summer Melon Soup

4 c ripe cantaloupe cut into 1" pieces (seeds removed)
4 c watermelon cut into 1" pieces
Juice of one lemon
1-2 tsp honey liquefied (15 secs in micro)
1/4 tsp salt
2 fresh jalapeno seeded and finely minced
1/2 c fresh blueberries

Puree the cantaloupe and watermelon in a food processor, add lemon juice, honey, salt and peppers to taste. Chill about 4 hours. Garnish with fresh blueberries and serve.

Now while we didn't have this as the soup course, it was a great starter dish while being outside with the bbq going Next time I think I'll omit lemon juice and use lime and add just few spinkles of cilantro on top.

Keep your mind wide open.

Oh, we'd like that! I love fruit soups as a starter for summer dinners - so refreshing.
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.
