Sometimes in the South you need flavors and tastes that fit the season, and some Cantaloupe Soup fits the bill.
A chilled soup that is great for beating the heat, this dish blends the delicacy and sweetness of cantaloupe with orange juice, a hint of lime juice, some cinnamon, and salt. Cantaloupe may not be your first choice in soups, but it is a great choice for any number of wonderful dishes. This firm, fresh melon has a light and delicate taste, meshing well with bold flavors and distinctive spices. For a sweet-and-salty combo, try some Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon.
And if you want the flavors of cantaloupe on their own, dish up a serving or two of Cantaloupe-Spinach Salad with Pistachio-Lime Vinaigrette. For another unexpected approach to this magnificent melon, make a batch of Cantaloupe Sorbet: water, sugar, and fruit create a frozen delight ready to scoop and pile high. For fun, flavor, and fizz, some Vanilla-Champagne Soaked Fruit should push your love for this melon right to the limit. Go ahead and have an extra slice.
