Use your favorite melon to personalize this delicious soup! If you like gazpacho, this recipe is worth a try. The photo shows a soup made with cantaloupe, but you could easily use watermelon or honeydew: whatever’s fresh and on sale! It’s also a great way to use up leftovers from a multi-melon fruit salad.
