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.

How to Make It

Combine 1 cup honeydew melon, 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, fresh lime juice, and honey in a blender; process until smooth. Add remaining melon and salt; process until smooth. Transfer melon mixture to a bowl; cover and chill at least 1 hour. Ladle about 3/4 cup soup into each of 6 bowls; garnish each serving with 1 thin lime slice and 1 thinly sliced mint leaf, if desired.

Mmmmm.....mmmmmmm...(slurp, slurp)...Oh my goodness...this is so good...I wouldn't have thought to pair honeydew with mint, but the blend of flavors is amazing. I used a King o' the West honeydew, which was very sweet, so I might have gotten by without the honey. I served this alongside CL Prosciutto, Peach and Sweet Lettuce Salad (Aug. 2010) with focaccia and riesling for a light supper. Never again will leftover honeydew go bad, because I will definitely keep this recipe on-hand.

I was really excited about making this dish because I LOVE honeydew, but my family and I couldn't even stomach it. I followed the recipe to a T, and we ended up having to dump it in the end.

We made this, over the summer and thought it was delicious! It tasted so good at the end of a hot day. I think we made some sort of chicken dish to go with it, too. Will definitely make again.
