Chilled melon soup takes the edge off a hot summer

Chilled soups are a delicious way to start of your meal, and they make for great appetizers when throwing a party. They're quick and easy to make, but remember a little goes a long way. This is not a hearty stew that you'd serve a heaping bowl full of. Think shot glasses for a passed hors d'oeuvres, or tasting size cups if you're serving as a starter.
