Chilled Cucumber Melon Soup

An 8" European soup plate holds a smooth soup with small bits of melon, a swirl of yogurt, and sprinkle of fresh thyme.  A freshly pressed cotton napkin and vintage silver soup spoon are shown just to the left

According to Taste Atlas and an informal survey of Google searches, cantaloupe remains one of the most popular melons today, however, we have so many other choices! The inspiration for this recipe is a cantaloupe-type melon called a Charentais, however, we used an alternate variety called Hami. As an experienced cook, you already know that all recipes are mere guides. Once you open and taste your melon, adjust for acidity and sweetness as required.
