Honeydew Blueberry Soup

Rating: 4.04 stars
A cold soup of honeydew and blueberries. Top with whipped topping, if desired.

Easy Cantaloupe Salsa

Rating: 5 stars
This is the best salsa ever! The recipe was given to me by a friend and it always goes quickly. It's easy to double, and people always ask for the recipe so have extras on hand! I prefer fresh tomatoes, but the recipe calls for canned. You can also substitute any fruit to adjust it to your tastes. If you have a food processor or mini chopper, this recipe is much quicker and easier. Serve with Tostitos® Scoops!® chips. Enjoy!
