Creamy Cold Honeydew Soup



This cool, fruity soup is an ideal way to start or finish a light dinner on a too-hot-to-cook night. They key is a juicy, ripe melon: immature honeydew is hard and tasteless. Look for a creamy white rind, a velvety (not smooth) skin, and an overall heavy feel. If under ripe, place on the counter out of direct sunlight for a few days.

I followed the recipe, and then ad-libed on the amounts to suit to our taste. It was delicious. I would love to make a blender of this and drink it out of a cup during the day! Be sure to use Greek Yogurt. It's the consistency of sour cream and so good! I used chilled bowls when we had this with dinner. A serving of this soup satisfies nearly half of your daily vitamin C requirement.
