“I took this from Eating Well Magazine and it is a favorite at our home! I omitted the jalapeno, but the original recipe does call for 1 pepper chopped and added to blender with the scallions. You can try any variety of melon with this soup! I have so far only made it with watermelon and it was wonderful!”

  1. Dice enough melon to measure 1 cup and combine in a small bowl with cucumber, 2 tbsp lime juice and scallion green. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve soup.
