4th of July Food Ideas
No need to bring a boring old picnic side dish to your 4th of July festivities. We’ve laid out an entire menu of 4th of July food ideas for your Independence Day celebration from delicious appetizers, to cool summer desserts and refreshing cocktails. Best of all, we were careful to choose recipes that come together quickly, so you can get out of the kitchen and back to celebrating this special day with a plate of amazing food in hand.
Add a little Greek flavor to your menu! These Spanakopita Triangles from @playswellwithbutter are a hearty, satisfying, & modern twist on the traditional Greek dish we all know & love.
This recipe delivers some next-level brunch magic. We start with traditional French toast; stuff it with a creamy and sweet mascarpone raspberry filling; only to top it all off with a creamy sweet-and-tart balsamic glaze.
Recipe: Summer Charcuterie Board
On the Grill
We like to spice up grilling season with bold-flavored Hot & Spicy Pesto. Use it as a marinade for your shrimp and then add some to mayonnaise and lime juice for a unique aioli dipping sauce.
Sour Cherry and Bourbon Glazed Ribs
Who needs barbecue sauce? We dress these tender pork spareribs with a crazy-good homemade glaze featuring our signature DeLallo Sour Cherry Spread and a splash of Bourbon. You’ve never had ribs like these before!
On the Side
Recipe: Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
Summertime screams for s’mores. In this recipe, we take this best-loved backyard dessert to the next level with homemade marshmallows, crunchy pistachios and savory flavors from Havarti cheese and balsamic glaze.
Recipe: Homemade Frozen Yogurt with Sour Cherry Spread
This is a lighter twist on an Italian classic. Swap the gin for some prosecco for the perfect backyard barbecue cocktail.
Nothing says summer like a refreshing, orange-flavored aperol spritz. With Aperol, soda and champagne, this cocktail is perfect for toasting with good friends and family. Saluti!
