45+ Patriotic Foods for the Fourth of July

Everything I have seen lately has reminded me of the Fourth of July. Everywhere I look, I see red, white and blue and stars and stripes. I always look forward to Independence Day, and I realized today that it is not quite so far away. It is time to start planning family get togethers and parties. For us, that means fire crackers, bottle rockets, BBQ, lemonade pie, and flags and bunting everywhere. We are brimming with symbols of America from our lawn to our food. To help make your Independence Day soiree more festive and patriotic, I have assembled a collection of brilliant ways to add some of our country’s colors to your foods. You can also check out last year’s collection of patriotic foods for the Fourth of July. I hope you enjoy!
