When the weather gets hot, a chilled soup sounds good. But sometimes we think of rich, cream-based soups such as vichyssoise. A flavorful fruit soup such as this one is a much lighter alternative.
Here, honeydew melon, fresh mint and a good, fruity Gewurztraminer make for a cooling combination. A spoon of low-fat peach yogurt adds a touch of sweetness and smooths out the flavor of the soup. You might try other yogurt flavors such as raspberry or strawberry.
The soup is best when freshly made and served in chilled bowls set atop crushed ice.
