  1. YUM – those look delicious an fresh and so summery-colorful! I agree on this heat sapping any cooking-energy. I love summer, but it's been crazy this year. And awesome use for leftover pork – delish!!

    I absolutely love different types of tacos, especially in the summer. The salsa looks so delicious and summery! I love peach salsa, so I bet the nectarine is really good with pork.

  3. Oh yum. I can't get enough tacos. I love the nectarine and corn salsa on these – so summery!
