We celebrated Independence Day, like so many others, by having a picnic in the backyard with family and friends. My youngest daughter hosted this event, and while the temperatures remained in the high 90's with a heat index of well over 100 degrees, we all managed to have a fabulous time.
I'm sure that this recipe has been all over the internet and Pintrerest, but I thought I would still share.
Everyone was invited to bring a dish to pass, I was asked to make baked beans, I politely declined. What I actually said to my daughter went something like this: "Are you crazy, I'm not turning the oven on to make baked beans in this kind of heat!"
A few weeks ago, while perusing Facebook, one of friends posted a photo of her salsa, she had 26 comments from friends raving about her salsa. I messaged her and asked for the recipe. To my surprise that photo on Facebook was watermelon salsa. With the recipe in hand, I decided to make the salsa for my dish to pass for the 4th of July picnic.
