Summer is just around the corner, yay! During this holiday weekend we hope you enjoy the warmer weather and take advantage of the wonderful selection of seasonal produce. Here’s an easy, quick and delicious way to combine multiple flavors and vibrant colors. This super healthy, delicious salad from Luci’s Morsels combines the sweet juiciness of watermelon, the tangy taste of heirloom tomatoes, a hint of basil, and a pop of pine nuts!
