#BrunchWeek: Honey-Watermelon Soup + Day Two Links

#BrunchWeek Logo
May 6, 2013 - This is the easiest "soup" you will ever make. But it's pretty (read 'girly pink') and elegant. I whipped this up on a warm Friday evening for an easy first course but think that it would be an impressive brunch starter as well.

6 C cubed watermelon
1/2 C water
juice from one Meyer lemon
1 T honey
zest from one Meyer lemon (for garnish)
crumbled feta cheese (for garnish)

In batches, blend the watermelon, water, lemon juice, and honey. Ladle into individual servings and garnish with lemon and feta cheese.
