Cantaloupe Gazpacho

Light and refreshing, this Cantaloupe Gazpacho recipe is just the ticket for the tail end of Spring and Summer when the weather begins to heat up. Fruit soups are this month’s theme for Soup Saturday Swappers.  

This month is hosted by Camilla at Culinary Adventures with Camilla, who tasked us with making fruit soups. Since I’ve posted a Watermelon Berry Gazpacho in the past, I thought I’d try one using another melon, Cantaloupe.

Cantaloupe, cucumber, strawberries, orange juice, orange zest and some honey are combined for this soup. And you really have to love a recipe that requires no cooking! All the ingredients are thrown in the food processor and blended, and it’s done! What a bonus!

This soup is a great breakfast, brunch recipe. It would also be perfect for a light supper, paired with a salad, for those hot summer nights. I hope you’ll give it a try.

About P ~ The Saucy Southerner

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~

    Yum. I love cantaloupe and will have to give this a try for the summer months. I loved the chive flower garnish btw.

    • Thank you, Sid! I hope you do try it. It was very refreshing. I needed some contrasting color and was in my herb garden when I spotted the chive flowers. I’m glad you noticed! Normally my garnishes will tell something about the ingredients, but this time they were just for looks. <3 P~
