Summer fruit soup

We all make lots of soups in the fall and winter, but what about the summer?

Until last year, I had never thought to make a chilled summer soup. However, after attending a "summer soups" class at my local Whole Foods, I was hooked!

Whole Foods' Strawberry Melon Gazpacho

Serves 8

2 cups (1-inch cubes) cantaloupe
2 cups (1-inch cubes) seedless watermelon
1 cuke, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 lb. organic strawberries, hulled and divided
1 T fresh (!) lime juice

Place cantaloupe, watermelon, cuke, half the strawberries and the lime juice in a food processor and blend until pureed. Chop remaining strawberries and stir into the soup. Refrigerate until chilled.

This is really tasty. Who knew cucumbers and strawberries could get along so well?
