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.

The garnishes take the soup to another level. Feta brings a tangy element while olive oil adds a rich mouthfeel. Kaffir lime leaf slivers bring a luscious perfume and unique citrusy flavor. The green herb garnish of mint and cilantro contrasts the pastel-orange soup for a very pretty presentation.

  1. I made this soup as part of a ‘fancy’ girl’s night dinner at my home. It was sublime! Even my picky friend who eats like a 10 year-old loved it! That’s high praise. It isn’t often that I find a recipe that I don’t want to tweak, but this one is absolutely perfect as is! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe.

    1. Hi Millie – thanks for taking the time to let me know! You made my day 🙂 So glad it was a hit. Sure is a pretty soup for hot summer weather. I’m curious about the rest of your Fancy Girls menu?
