Can you guess what my favorite summer activity is? I'll give you a hint: it's an outdoor activity to be enjoyed with family. It includes a blanket to sit on and a basket filled with snacks or a whole meal to share with the people I love the most. If you guessed picnic, you're right! And if you like picnics as much as I do, then I know you'll love this fresh salad with ham, corn and jalapeño. It's perfect for a picnic at the park or beach. MORE + LESS -
