Chilled Cantaloupe and Key Lime Soup
Feta, Cilantro, Mint, Kaffir Lime, Olive Oil

With just three ingredients, cold cantaloupe soup couldn’t be easier to prepare, nor more refreshing. This delightful Chilled Cantaloupe and Key Lime Soup is perfect for summer entertaining. Key limes give the soup a fresh bright acidity.
