20 Recipes to Make for the 4th of July

20 delicious, healthy recipe to make for the 4th of July! You’ll love these appetizers, mains and treats that are perfect for any party.

It’s that time again…time to make DELICIOUS food and surround yourself with family and friends! While I frequently make delicious food (if I do say so myself) the best part about it is gathering around a table and sharing it with the people I love. I’m especially excited to be spending this Fourth of July with my mama by my side.

I’m starting to think that spring / summer holidays are my favorite. While I’m all for Thanksgiving (um, have you seen my Pumpkin Pie with Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust) and absolutely love cookies & hot cocoa on Christmas, there’s nothing quite like the sizzle of the grill, being outside, and the sun setting at 8PM.  SO I’ve rounded up the best of the best for you to whip up for your Fourth of July table — everything from fresh salads to juicy grilling recipes, and of course all of the festive treats (did someone say frosé?)

Enjoy xo!
