Mint Cucumber Soup

Chef Tom makes Mint Cucumber Soup
With fresh produce starting to appear in the market, here's a fresh and easy way to get your servings of fruit and veggies!

1 cantaloupe - peeled, seeded, and cut into small pieces
Juice from 2 limes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chipotle powder or smoked paprika
7-8 mint leaves
1 cucumber - peeled, seeded,and cut into small pieces
1/3 lb strawberries - stemmed and chopped

In a blender or food processor, add cantaloupe, lime juice, salt, chipotle/paprika and mint.  Process until completely pureed.  Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to do this in multiple shifts.

Strain cucumber puree through a medium mesh sieve into a large bowl

Add cucumbers and strawberries, mix well.

Garnish with mint and a strawberry slice.

Enjoy!
