Happy July 4, celebrity gossip lovers!
While this is a time to hit the beach, hang with family and watch fireworks, we all know what this holiday is truly about: FOOD!
Specifically, July is about grilling – and we're here to help with the following patriotically awesome recipes.
1. Patriotic Pasta
To do something different with your pasta salad this year, try boiling your noodles in water colored with food coloring.
2. Corn on the Cob
Want to make your corn on the cob amazing? GRILL IT! Shuck it and throw it over the coals. Slather with butter, sprinkle with salt, or coat it with mayonnaise!
It doesn’t get more perfect than a juicy grilled burger. The little flag just sort of makes it, don’t you think? (Mustard on the bottom bun, people!)
Spice up your slaw with slices of jalapeno and squeezes of lime juice!
5. Baked Beans
It’s hard to top baked beans as the perfect side dish for a barbecue. We won’t tell if you just open a can and pretend you slaved away.
6. Fruit Flag
As either an appetizer or dessert, this fruit flag – made from strawberry, banana, and blueberry kabobs – dresses up the table!
