School's out, the pools are full, and the grills are hot. Who doesn't love this time of year? Okay, so the heat here in Longhorn Land can get a bit stifling, but as long as you find a nice shady spot and keep some cool, tasty treats by your side you'll be fine!
This summer I am lucky enough to travel to beautiful Savannah, Georgia to attend the FitBloggin14. I am so excited for this because it's my first real-life convention, I'll be surrounded all weekend by fitness minded folks like myself, AND the California Avocado Commission is one of the sponsors!
The pineapple and mint are a cool contrast to the spicy jalapeno, while the avocado soothes and smooths, binding all the flavors into a creamy-cool summer-time salsa. This cool and tasty recipe will be entered into the “California Avocado Cutting-Edge Culinary Recipe Contest”.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Tell me, what are your summer plans?
