My dear friend Angela makes this cold soup often and sent me her recipe and recommended I try it… and so I did!  

An alternative to the traditional Gazpacho soup which is made with chilled tomatoes or other vegetables and spices.  This chilled soup is made using honeydew melon, fresh herbs, and lime juice.

The outcome was fantastic!  It was quick to make and tasted delicious!
