And with this easy 4th of July recipe, you can have a healthy holiday appetizer ready in minutes.
Making a Healthy 4th of July Recipe Should Be Easy!
To me, the 4th of July is all about taking time to relax and celebrate with family. I don’t want to spend hours preparing meals for company. Sure, I could share with you beautiful, delicious recipes, but let’s be honest. If the recipe involves running out to the store to pick up ingredients you’ve never heard of or spending your precious free time slicing and dicing non-stop, you most likely aren’t going to make the recipe. Instead, using ingredients you probably already have in the house, you can whip up these red, white, and blue appetizers without missing out on any fun this holiday.
