Wow! This summer’s heat and humidity has sure been oppressive. With reports this is the hottest summer in New England, we have definitely felt it around the AP office. With sweat dripping and fans roaring, we are constantly looking for a way to cool down. A good friend of ours recently introduced us to the perfect thing! Our friend Jackie, who loves the culinary arts, found an amazing recipe online! Now we have all heard of mango salsa but how about watermelon? Watermelon, a delicious summer treat, always pulls off the cooling trick and when mixed with tomatoes is surprisingly delicious and refreshing. To beat the summer heat, try something a little unique and thirst-quenching. Thanks Jackie!
