This soup recipe is inspired by a cantaloupe and heirloom tomato salad served by Chef Matthew Accarrino at SPQR restaurant in San Francisco. This simple soup uses a blend of cantaloupe and yellow tomatoes and is topped with creamy mozzarella, basil leaves, and a sprinkle of cayenne to balance the sweetness. Light, fresh, and summery - this soup makes a delightful and surprising warm weather dish.
