 4th food

4th of July.

What’s the first word that pops into your head!?

I’m guessing that at least half of you think of GOOD FOOD.

How could you not… it’s basically the Thanksgiving of summer!

In addition to my memories of family and friends, boating, and fireworks, I think of my dear Grandma’s jello and deviled eggs, slices of juicy honey-baked ham, sweetly flavored baked beans, and an array of fresh, vibrant salads!

In lieu of our country’s upcoming 236th birthday, check out these delectable, gluten-free dishes to make your holiday EPIC. Cheers to a fun 4th!
