Cool Honeydew-Mint Soup

Yield 6 servings
A refreshing tangy-sweet soup is a nice way to conclude an outdoor summer meal of grilled chicken or fish. Just a bit of salt heightens the flavor of all the ingredients. If your honeydew melons need sweetening, add extra honey.

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-pound) honeydew melon, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 thin lime slices (optional)
  • 6 thinly sliced fresh mint leaves (optional)
