The PERFECT Summer Side
Anyone else a fan of summer cookouts with friends? My husband and I sure are! Typically, when we’re not the ones hosting, we are often asked to bring sides. On a non-summer season, our potluck “crowd favorites” include these yummy dips, 4-ingredient bagels, and even our healthy banana bread (yes, you read that right!) But today, I’ll be showing you how to make these highly-requested summer cookout side: our Fresh Mexican Tomato Salad!
Honestly, I could eat this salad everyday. So refreshing, so fresh, and so easy to make, I guarantee this Fresh Mexican Tomato Salad to be a hit at every party! Made with healthy ingredients and a whole lot of love, this perfect party side comes together in just 15 minutes, but tastes even better when made a few hours beforehand. Oh, and of course, this tastes AMAZING when paired with our homemade flour tortillas! Ready for the recipe??
A summer classic!
