Chilled Cucumber Melon Soup
Chilled Cucumber Melon Soup is a refreshing, cold soup made with honeydew melon, cucumber and fresh mint.
Servings: 4 people
- 1 medium honeydew melon
- 1 medium English cucumber
- ½ cup sugar, optional
- ½ cup mint leaves
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes optional
Roughly dice the honeydew melon and cucumber. If the skin of the cucumber is tough, peel it before chopping.
Add all of the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
Transfer to a container and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, but up to overnight before serving.
Optionally, garnish with additional mint leaves and thinly sliced cucumber.
Sugar and crushed red pepper flakes are optional in this soup. If your melon isn't very ripe, add in the sugar. If you like a kick of heat, add in the crushed red pepper flakes.
Swirl in some sour cream or plain Greek yogurt if desired. Or topped with shredded prosciutto.
