If you are looking for unique ways to use red, white, and blue foods this Independence Day you will love these ideas for a patriotic feast.
While I was compiling this list of Patriotic Red, White, and Blue foods and drinks, I was pretty surprised to find such unique ideas because normally I find a bunch of recreations of the same things.
It was really cool to find a Red, White, and Blue salad, I didn’t expect to see that one,, I am going to have to try it.
Another recipe that I stumbled upon and immediately knew I would have to try is this Red, White, and Blue Virgin Sangria.
We recently visited a local restaurant who was giving out a sample of Green Apple Sangria to guests when we arrived, and my husband tried a sample.
He was pretty blown away by it so he asked the waitress who gives half refills of salad where he could get more of this or make it at home.
She told him it was so simple to make at home, just use Moscato, green apple flavoring, and ginger ale, then she hurried off to the kitchen in order to cheat someone else out of the best part of their meal.
So now my wheels are turning and I am excited to try new sangrias in hopes of being inspired to make one that I love as much as he loved that green apple one.
I ate a lot of delicious foods over the weekend but I didn’t get any desserts that really hit the spot.
We visited the Cedar Falls, Waterloo area and tried a Mexican restaurant out that way that has some enormous burritos and a delicious salsa verde.
It’s funny because I almost gave up on finding a good Mexican Restaurant in Iowa but this place did not disappoint me.
I bet this NoBake Strawberries & Cream Icebox Cake Recipe will not disappoint either, no bake and delicious is a great combination when serving guests this Fourth of July.
Another one of those unexpected unique ideas for making a traditional recipe more patriotic is this American Flag Potato Salad.
I love the use of Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, such a cool idea!
Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with making the same old thing, especially when you put your own spin on it to make it unique but there is something really exciting to me about a new idea.
I also love to make my favorite Easy Patriotic Cookie Recipe at every chance I get but I know it has been done before and it will probably not WOW anyone at my Fourth of July celebration.
Now, this Fourth of July Popcorn Recipe will impress your guests and they will really be blown away if they are vegans who never find a good dessert at gatherings when you give them these Vegan Coconut Treats.
Another common patriotic food that I still enjoy making are these All Natural Bomb Pops Recipe.
In my opinion, when you can make a traditional dessert taste great without all of the artificial ingredients, that means that you have a superpower.
That is the kind of thing that earns you the Supermom title.
I hope you enjoy these Red, White, and Blue Foods and Drinks, and have a Happy Fourth of July!
