Cold Honeydew Soup…

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

It is basically an alternative to the traditional Gazpacho soup which is made with chilled tomatoes or other vegetables and spices. 

Only this chilled soup is made with honeydew melon, fresh herbs, and lime juice.

And, we have to tell you, the outcome was fantastic!  It was quick to make and delicious tasting!
