About this

Part salad, part brunch, this chilled cantaloupe soup is all health and flavor. Dressy enough to be an elegant soup or appetizer it’s also versatile enough to be enjoyed at home, for no special occasion other than treating yourself to an out of the ordinary dish.

We don’t make soups often enough here on Platter Talk but we’ve had a couple of beauties and this chilled cantaloupe soup can run with the best of them.

Last summer we introduced our chilled blueberry soup and tomato, strawberry and basil gazpacho. With this recipe, it seemed only fitting to introduce another gorgeous summer soup to the mix.

This chilled cantaloupe soup takes just minutes to blend together. A couple of lime wedges, a splash of orange juice, and of course a cantaloupe, and you’re good to go with a new taste sensation that’s as easy on the eyes as it is on the palate.  Long live summer! You’re sure to enjoy this one.  -Dan
