Even though it is almost May, we still have a little snow here in Utah. I am not a cold person, so I drown my winter sorrows by eating food that reminds me of summer! This recipe comes from Our Best Bites and is one of my family's favorites! It is perfect to bring to a summer barbecue or eat in your sweat pants dreaming of warm summer days. :)
