Festive 4th of July Recipes

It's almost the 4th of July! That time of year when all you can think about is red, white and blue any and everything. I've gathered some of my favorite Festive 4th of July recipes and more below. Get ready to have the BEST 4th ever!

Fourth of July Fruit Wands are a fun activity for kids! Cut out star shaped watermelon, grab some blueberries and let your kids create their own fruit wand!

When I think of the 4th of July I think of grilling out in the backyard and making a delicious juicy burger. These 11 Mouthwatering Burgers have something for everyone in the family from meat eater to vegan. 

If burgers on the grill aren't your thing, this simple Broiled Salmon with Summer Fruit Salad should definitely be on your menu.

Summer Succotash Pasta Salad is a classic summertime recipe which makes it a great dish to serve at 4th of July gatherings!

Blue Corn Chip Crusted Fish Sticks uses naturally blue chips to make this dish super festive. 

Red, White and Blue Parfaits with granola or Fourth of July Parfaits with angel food cake are so much fun to make (and even more fun to eat!)

I love making a huge dish of Classic Macaroni and Cheese for the 4th too. We can't resist that ooey gooey cheesy goodness. 

Even 4th of July breakfast can be festive with this American Flag Toast that is so so cute!

Heirloom Tomato Salad will look beautiful on your table and is so good for you.

If you're having a party with a lot of people this Ultimate DIY Hot Dog Bar is the way to go. Grill up a bunch of hot dogs and place all your favorite toppings out so everyone can make their own!

Whole Wheat Double Chocolate Brownie Bites are delicious any time of year, but top them with some Coconut Whipped Cream and fresh strawberries and blueberries to give them a 4th of July twist!

Fruity Mocktails (or cocktails) are a must at your Fourth of July party. 

Strawberry Lemon Hand Pies for dessert are a no brainer. Fresh juicy strawberries in a bite-sized crispy pie crust? What could be better? 

Tomato Bruschetta is a staple at any gathering I have because it's so delicious. The flavor combo is out of this world!

If we know anything about the month of July, it's that it is H-O-T! Cool down with these Red, White & Blue Pops

Watermelon Star Bites couldn't be easier to make and will add the festive 4th of July touch you're looking for. 

I hope these Festive Fourth of July Recipes give you tons of inspiration for fun and easy cooking projects you can do together!
