A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Cucumber Melon Soup

The combination of cucumbers and melon have become very popular in cuisine recently…you can even by cucumber melon perfume and candles. Personally, I think they are at their best combined together in this wonderful and easy chilled soup. This lowfat and low calorie soup is an excellent first course, dessert, or even light lunch or dinner served with a crisp salad.

2 cups chopped honeydew
2 large chopped cucumbers
8 ounces plain non-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Freshly ground white pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. Pour the mixture through a sieve to strain out any chunks of seeds and peel. Taste and season adjust seasonings if necessary. Cover and chill the soup for at least 30 minutes and up to 5 hours before serving.

Makes 4 servings.
