Six 4th of July favorites! Crowd pleasing recipes for the holiday weekend whether you’re hosting a BBQ in the backyard, or having a picnic to watch some fireworks.
Here are my top picks:
If you are wanting a low-carb option but still want to be festive, check out this Red White and Blue Flank Steak Salad! Delightful! Please be sure to make it with the blueberry balsamic dressing, OKAY??
Not your average BBQ Chicken:
Need BBQ Chicken upgrade?? This salad is where it’s at! It’s like a backyard BBQ Party in yo mouth.
Imagine all the things you love about a BBQ chicken pizza, in pasta-salad-form. Holy flavor-ville. Please make this at some point if not this weekend.
Yes, more chicken:
Another grilled chicken option for y’all: Honey and Cilantro Grilled Chicken…. shall I say more?? This is such a crowd-pleaser.SHH, your guests don’t need to know you only used a handful of ingredients!
In need of a meatless option?? I got you!
My sister is a vegetarian so I am always looking for a great option when I am hosting her. This Harissa Lentil Patty can easily be made vegan by subbing a flax egg. You do you!
I feel like you either enjoy coming up with side dishes, or you don’t. I happen to be all about them! They are the most fun to get creative with, but also the tastiest in my opinion!
This Ancient Grain side dish is not only festive but quick and easy! This fiber-filled side will leave your eyes and stomach satisfied….until dessert.
Speaking of DESSERT…
OH EM Geeee this PIE y’all is a must try! I saved the best for last!
This Hazelnut Chocolate Pie It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and SO DELICIOUS! I promise you will be wondering how something so healthy can be so dang good!
