Peach and Melon Soup

July 9, 2011


Today I bring you a recipe for soup from Saluda.


The other night we dined at a local restaurant called The Purple Onion. I love this place. Great food, lively atmosphere.


We ordered a peach and melon soup that reminded me of a chilled, summery gazpacho. The soup was so tasty, I decided to make my own version at home.

Ingredients: (makes 2 servings)

1 cup chopped cantaloupe

2 peaches (or nectarines) chopped, peeled and pitted

2 teaspoons citrus champagne vinegar

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions: In a food processor, blend all ingredients until as smooth as you like. If the soup is too thick, add a splash of water. Season to taste and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint. Chill and serve.


Refreshing on a hot summer day.

Wow – this looks super refreshing. Did you have this as part of your meal or as dessert or an appetizer or what?

I ate it with lunch but you could easily have it for breafast, as a snack or any time you are craving fruit!

Peaches make such excellent chilled soups. I did mine with cucumber a couple of days ago – love the idea of using melon with it too!

Oooh, cucumber would be so nice!

Any form of cold soup is always welcome on a hot summer day.
This one, totally fruit based, looks really inviting.

Thanks for sharing it.

Wow! A southern gazpacho. This would work for any meal (or with a little vodka, happy hour).
