Grapefruit and Cherry Tomato Salsa for CInco de Mayo

I hope you all had a great weekend!!  Happy Cinco de Mayo! In case you are in need of a last minute appetizer, try this Grapefruit and Cherry Tomato Salsa, along with some homemade baked tortilla chips.  And if you aren’t still hungover from the Derby, I’ve rounded up some great drinks to pair with that salsa too ~ it’s all in the same post if you follow the link!

Were you torn about whether to celebrate the Derby or Cinco de Mayo this weekend?  We went to a fab Derby party on Saturday at our friend’s house complete with fancy mint juleps and all.  I think it was the first day that it felt “hot” outside so far this spring.  (And miraculously I did not get sunburned!)   I hope your Mondays go very smoothly as you ease into this week.  Here are some links I’ve been admiring of late:

Love the sweet and spicy combo of this strawberry habanero margarita.
