Happy Memorial Day weekend! The perfect intro to the summer season, although it’s been feeling like summer for awhile here. Trees and gardens are filling out, local farmers markets have more outdoors, and people are starting to show more skin.

It’s the perfect time to host a get together, welcome the warm sunshine, and enjoy delicious food with your mates. Let’s spice it up a bit this year with this colorful blend of crisp veggies!

After all who could resist the crunch of the corn, tang of the vinegar, and kick of the jalapeños…Mmm! If you don’t like it, no worries, more for me!

Serve as a dip with chips or as a fresh new topping on Taco Tuesday!
