Lights, Camera, Uh-Oh: The First "Savor the Moment" Video Blog!

Happy Memorial Day & welcome to the first "Savor the Moment" Video Blog! Today's recipe is a delicious and refreshing Watermelon Salsa that's just perfect for Summer entertaining. Just a note, I ran into a wee bit of technical difficulty during filming (memory card ran out of space) so the video is presented in two parts. Don't run off at intermission though because I have a question for you at the end of the video and George Clooney may or may not make a cameo appearance - you just have to watch and find out! I have also included the recipe for the Watermelon Salsa below. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did - Cheers!

1/8 teaspoon grated gingerroot
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Combine the watermelon, jalapeƱos, onion, cilantro, parsley, ginger, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix gently. Let stand for 30 minutes to blend flavors. Serve within a few hours. Serves eight.
