This sweet and savory salsa offers everything you could want in a summer appetizer. The strawberries, jicama, and blueberries offer the vibrant colors and sweet taste, while the jalapeno and cilantro bring the spice. Bring out the blue (or regular) corn chips and dig in!
Now this is a little crazy, so prepare yourselves. Okay, ready? Watermelon cake with whipped cream frosting. The catch is, it’s not really a cake at all. It’s just a pretty, patriotic watermelon covered in whipped cream and almonds for a 4th of July treat that is light and delicious.
