The Fourth of July is right around the corner. If you – like us – are wondering (1) where the heck June went and (2) what in the world to make for that cookout next weekend, here are some patriotic food and drink ideas:
Fourth of July Lasagna from spoonful.com: A savory lasagna designed to look like the flag – pure genius!
Blueberry, Strawberry, Jicama Salsa from Two Peas and Their Pod: A great fruit salsa that is naturally red, white, and blue!
Patriotic Taco Salad from Taste of Home: Another savory flag themed dish.
Red, White, and Blue Fruit Kabobs from the england’s: Fruit kabobs = fun.
Berries with Tequila Cream from Southern Living: This isn’t a dessert for the kiddies, but you’ll definitely enjoy it.
American Flag Pie from The Winthrop Chronicles: This pie takes a bit of effort, but the end result is so lovely.
Starfruit Upside Down Cake by Love and Olive Oil: Starfruit is naturally star-shaped, so it fits right in at a Fourth of July celebration.
Red, White, and Blue Daiquiris from the Food Network: Yummm
Red, White, and Blue Sangria from Recipe Girl: Another tasty adult beverage option. Love the pineapple stars!
Red, White, and Blue Ice Cubes from Momtastic: Love this idea! Simply freeze colorful red and blue fruit into ice cubes and add to beverages (sprite, water, lemonade, etc) for extra festive drinks.
