  This Southwestern Tomato and Yogurt Parfait is made in trendy glass canning jars, but you can use wine glasses, juice glasses or whatever you have.

It’s easy to make the salsa, but if you’re pressed for time you can buy ready-made corn and bean salsa.

Check out the history of the parfait—for most of its existence, a frozen dessert.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
