Celebrating the 4th in Style {{Food}}

I love food at an outdoor BBQ! There is always a huge variety and you can try out new recipes with no shame. Last year, I did a round up of 4th of July themed eats here that you might enjoy and I also have a Lemon Berry Trifle recipe that would be amaze, which you can find here

Couscous Fruit Salad by Noble Pig

Red, White, and Blue Summer Salad by Real Mom Kitchen- add chicken and you have a main dish! 

Blueberry, Strawberry, Jicama Salsa by Two Peas and Their Pod- I've also seen this done as a fruit salad without all the spiciness. Just sub the jicama for apple, cilantro for basil and take out all the spicy elements. 

Red, White, and Bleu Slaw by Taste of Home 

Easy Flag Fruit Dessert by Family Fresh Meals - you could also sub cheese (brie, swiss, white cheddar, etc.) on here for the white component.

  3. Such fun ideas! The summer salad looks so good!

  4. Yummmm loving these ideas! Especially the summer salad and salsa :-D

  5. There was a whole lot of health food happening in the beginning of this post and I was starting to get worried! I say bring on the cheat day, baby! :) Hope you have the best Holiday!
