Getting Festive With Food

Showcase your patriotism with a few red, white and blue recipes that are easy and fun to make. You can take a dish to a cookout for the 4th of July or prepare a meal or two for your family to enjoy at home. If you want to prepare something with sustenance, then consider a salad with roasted red peppers, purple potatoes, small pieces of mozzarella and small gold potatoes. It will look like a firework of flavor on the plate.


When you make desserts for the fall and winter seasons, you might make a cake roll. Most rolls are made with pumpkin or chocolate. You can change the dynamics by making a vanilla cake, separating the batter so that you can make one red cake and one that is blue. Roll the two together, coating with white icing, so that the cake resembles a flag when it’s cut. Get the day started healthy with a fruit smoothie in patriotic layers. Freeze the fruit juice before making the smoothie so that it will hold its form better in the glass. Blueberries, strawberries, and cream work best when making the drink. Another way to start the morning with a delicious meal is to make French toast with blueberries and strawberries on top. You could also make a French toast casserole with layers of fruits.


Make a red, white and blue salad for a refreshing side dish using diced watermelon and blueberries. This is a delightful dish for a picnic or if you need to serve a large number of people. Top the salad with slivers of lime and toasted coconut. Ginger can add a spark to the salad, combining well with the fireworks for the 4th of July.
