Minted Honeydew Soup

Looking for a refreshing summer soup? You've found it. Minted Honeydew Soup is a delightful blend of mint and melon that will leave you wanting more.

The dog days of summer have arrived, meaning it's the perfect time to prepare your cold soup recipes. This recipe is from Carol Gelles' 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes, past winner of the Julia Child Cookbook Awards. I will be sharing the recipe for Ginger-Cantaloupe Soup (seen in foreground) in an upcoming post.
