Celebrating the Fourth of July has never been easier or healthier. Check out these Easy and Healthy Patriotic Food Ideas for your next summer party.
Patriotic Salad with Quinoa and Berries
“This salad is not only beautiful – it’s fresh and delicious too. I love sweet summer berries in salads and quinoa adds protein and a hearty nutty bite. It’s nice to have a big healthy salad to fill up on when there’s bound to be desserts later.”
American Flag Caprese Salad
“The addition of purple potatoes to the classic mozzarella and tomato salad makes for a patriotic side dish, perfect for any summer party. It looks adorable in the flag design, but will look equally tasty mixed together in a bowl if you don’t have the patience to set it up.”
American Flag Vegetable Tray
“This fun American Flag Vegetable Tray Platter and Dill Dip Recipe makes an easy 4th of July party idea!”
Watermelon, Mozzarella, and Blueberry Skewers
“I decided to make a great appetizer for the 4th of July combining watermelon and cheese. I decided to add blueberries as well to make it red, white, and blue. This appetizer would also be good for any party or any time of the year. For the cheese, I decided to use mozzarella as I thought that would taste really good with the watermelon and blueberry.”
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
“Try these easy red, white, and blue Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries for a healthier patriotic dessert!”
4th of July Toast
A creative and easy way to serve breakfast on the Fourth of July!
Overnight Coconut-Almond Fresh Toast Casserole
“Impress your family with this flavorful Overnight Coconut-Almond French Toast Casserole!”
Red, White, and Blueberry Turkey Burger Sliders
“The great thing about sliders is the automatic portion control. One or two of these little guys is all I need, and I still have plenty of room on my plate (and calories) for corn on the cob, potato salad, grilled fruit, and maybe even a little ice cream. I found the whole wheat slider buns at Kroger, but even small dinner rolls will work.”
Red, White, and Blue Potato Salad
“Roasted small red, white and blue potatoes along with roasted red pepper chunks, onions, parsley and lots of lemon zest all tossed while it’s warm in an olive oil and lemon dressing.”
Patriotic Cheesecake Parfait
“Achieve the flavor of a freshly baked cheesecake without the hassle (or the calories!) in this patriotic parfait.”
10 Minute Easy Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes
“Do you need a super fast yet delicious dessert in minutes? Preferably skinny, with few calories? I did too. These Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes in Filo Shells are incredibly easy. Truly, 10 minutes from start to finish… or even less.”
Red, White and Blue Cherry Pies
“Store-bought pie dough and cherry pie filling make these free-form pies so easy to make. A scoop of vanilla ice cream and fresh blueberry sauce drizzled over the top is a simple way to elevate this dessert.”
