This refreshing cold soup is an elegant starter course or a healthy dessert on a summer evening. Zesting citrus, like the lime and oranges in this recipe, is a great way to add flavor. It’s important, though, to zest only the colored surface of the fruit’s skin, not the white pith, which can be bitter. This recipe lends itself especially well to being doubled (and to experimenting with different varieties of melons).
