The flavors of summer are in full effect! Piling high, a trip to the farmers market is ripe with the season's bounty. And oh-so satisfying. What better day to exercise your right to healthy, local, organic - truly revolutionary! - food than on our own Independence Day? Make it a Meatless Monday, and a Meatless 4th of July! These recipes from some of our favorite foodie bloggers will surely get you fired up. (And, without the need for illegal fireworks.)
Simple. Rustic. Sweet. Feasting at Home presents us with a slight twist on an old favorite: Grilled Corn with Chipotle Lime Butter & Cilantro.
Utilizing the holiday's signature colors - red, white & blue - Two Peas & Their Pod has created a seasonal condiment you'll love to pile onto just about anything. Give this Blueberry, Strawberry & Jicama Salsa a place next to the ketchup, mustard and relish.
For a lighter appetizer that will pair well with soaring temperatures, the folks at E Is for Eat are sending us in the right direction: L is for: Lentil Endive Tacos.
And of course, here at OA we've featured a veritable potpourri of lip-smacking recipes for your festivities. Check out our 4th of July Recipe Roundup. (Hint: lots of delicious desserts.)
