Guest post! Mojito Salsa!

I had to wear boots today (luckily, they were new boots that I got while at Last Chance in Arizona), and not sure how I feel about it. I love boots, in October, or November, but September is too early for fall to set in! We’re going to CT today to visit some great friends and watch a UConn football game – Can’t wait!

I have a very special guest post today from one of my favorite healthy living bloggers! Check out Kelly from eat-yourself-skinny.com, her recipes are AMAZING, and this one is no exception, try it out and let her know much you love it!

Hi friends!  I’m Kelly from Eat Yourself Skinny and I’m SO excited to be guest posting for Shoshana’s fabulous blog while she’s out of town!  Thank you so much for having me!  I was lucky enough to have her guest post for me as well today and she made some delicious Spinach and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms that I know you are going to love and would make the perfect appetizer for any upcoming party.  Not only are Shoshana’s recipes amazing and so delicious, her blog Shosh and the City is absolutely inspiring 🙂

Since summer is coming to an end (sigh…I know) I wanted to squeeze in one last recipe that just screamed flip flops and sunshine!  I don’t know about you, but mojitos are probably one of my top favorite (and indulgent) cocktails during the summer and any dish that would accompany this awesomeness

    My favorite part about this dish are the combination of flavors!  You’ve got watermelon, honeydew, mint, lime, cilantro, red onion…shall I go on??  Yeah didn’t think so.  You can serve this with any type of bread or chips of your choice and this would even go well with a chicken or pork dish!  I chose to pair this salsa with lime flavored organic tortilla chips and they tasted amazing!

 

 

So I highly suggest you call an emergency happy hour, gather your friends and enjoy all this and more immediately!  Hope you enjoy this fabulous salsa as much as I did!
