This simple refreshing soup is great for luncheons or as a light starter for heartier fare. It was created by Joyce Wells of the Cayman Islands and is featured in her book "Taste of the Tropics". I often add a dash of green food colouring prior to chilling to enhance the appearance but it is certainly optional.
