My family stopped by Jill Eckert Tantillo's house on the Fourth of July to celebrate and let the kids splash around in the pool.  Of course, the food was plentiful and as delicious as ever!  Jill loves trying new recipes and this is one that I haven't had before, but fell in love with right away!  I must say, it is the perfect addition to any backyard barbecue this summer.  Enjoy!
