Hey Guys! I’m so looking forward to the 4th this year, so I’m sharing a round-up of our favorite summer picnic foods and drinks! Whether you’re hosting a big 4th of July party, or taking something to a friend’s house, these are some great recipes you don’t want to miss out on!
Jess originally shared this recipe
years ago, but since no one read our blog then, I thought it was worth mentioning again. 😉 This recipe is soooo simple, but looks and tastes fantastic!
All you need are a few home-grown tomatoes and cucumbers (or go ahead and get them at the store) and a blush wine vinaigrette (I used Brianna’s which is to die for, but any blush wine vinaigrette will do). Just add enough vinaigrette to cover the veggies and let marinate a few hours in the fridge. If you’re really feeling crazy, add some cut red onion to the mix, as well. And voila! A refreshing, delicious salad to enjoy as we celebrate our great country!
Jess and I had a blast making and taste-testing our favorite Summertime Drinks
, which include Stars & Stripe Sangria, Lime Rickeys and Pineapple Planter’s Punch. They’re all delicious and can be made kid-friendly (except for the sangria!) or spiced up a bit for the adults.
