Quick and Easy Party Food Ideas for Fourth of July!

With the Fourth of July coming up, I thought I’d share some of my easy recipes that can be made last minute at your BBQs!

You can make this Patriotic Fruit Flag in less than 5 minutes.  All you need is some red, white, and blue fruit!

You could make these easy Summer pasta salad the day before your BBQ.  It is healthy and stores well overnight!

One of my *favorite* things to eat during the Summer is corn-on-the-cob.  I LOVE this Mexican-style twist on classic grilled corn.

Something that’s fun especially for kids is serving pineapple smoothies (aka copycat Dole Whip like at Disneyland) in a pineapple cup!

I hope you were able to find something on here that you could make quick and easy at home for your BBQ!

    That Mexican grilled corn looks right up my alley! I've been seeing those Dole Whips all over social media lately, I'm really itching to try them. Might be a good weekend for that! 🙂

      Oh I replied earlier but I guess my slow internet didn't post it :-/ the Mexican corn is super good! I started making those copycat dole whips last Summer and you're right, now I see them everywhere too! Hope you tried it, they're good too!
