The Best, Easiest Foods To Make For Your Fourth Of July Party

The Best, Easiest Foods To Make For Your Fourth Of July Party

When you’re over burgers and hot dogs, get out these gorgeous antipasto platters and cheese plates.

With every Fourth of July comes the pressure to stand over a hot grill while you sweat profusely over piles of searing meat. But maybe 2018 is the year we change all of that.

Burgers, hot dogs and kebabs aren’t the only foods that evoke summer. In fact, their hot, salty meatiness only reminds us of the most unpleasant parts of the season. How about we celebrate the fresh, sunny elements of summer with some colorful antipasto platters, cheese plates and veggie boards?

There are three blogs in particular that nail summer party food ― Half Baked Harvest, Foodie Crush and How Sweet Eats ― and we’ve gathered our favorite picks from their offerings. Chill out and enjoy your independence from your grill on this Independence Day.
