Spring Picnic Series & Giveaway!

I truly love nothing more than a beautiful spring day, and what’s a more perfect way to spend the afternoon/evening than a yummy picnic? So today’s post has a fun little twist: I have teamed up with four other talented bloggers and we will each be sharing a portion of a delicious spring picnic menu as well as giving away a fabulous picnic basket {see entry details below}.

For my portion of the picnic, I went with a refreshing appetizer of Strawberry, Feta, & Avocado Salsa with Whole-Wheat Tortilla Crisps that is perfectly seasonal and a huge crowd pleaser! This recipe is a unique spin on a traditional tomato based salsa and boasts a flavorful combination of sweet and savory as well as a delightful punch of basil that is phenom.  I am in LOVE with this salsa!

  1. Emily, since I have chickens and fresh eggs I am always looking for new and different things to do with eggs. Any thoughts?
