Julie's Chunky Salsa

Guess what! I'm going to be doing a Cafe Rio giveaway for Cinco de Mayo! Yippeeee! More on that in a few weeks.

Back to the Cinco de Mayo Menu! Today we're having something you're going to want to be making all Summer. I'm certainly going to be making it all Summer. I've mentioned my girl Julie before. I love love love the way she cooks. Always fresh, always light, always sooo good. This chunky salsa is one of my favorites that she makes.
