Now that Chris is on summer break (yay!) and the hot weather is rolling in, it’s really feeling like summer. [Note: I wrote this post this weekend but just yesterday we had a fabulous thunderstorm that really cooled things off. Crazy spring weather!]
So this past weekend I dusted off one my new(ish) favorite recipes: watermelon salsa. I had this at a friend’s house last summer and was immediately in love with the sweet and spicy flavors and surprised at how well watermelon makes a salsa. This recipe is so easy and perfect for your first summer potluck.
