The Fourth of July is one of our favorite holidays at Dishing for many reasons: the local parade, music, fireworks and, of course, the backyard food. Nothing quite says 4th of July like a great barbecue. This year we put together a simple list of some of our favorite items from past and present magazines that we think every backyard barbecue should have. (Click on the link for recipes.)
The Wild Sage
This beet salad is filling and full of color. Add a little health to your buffet with this veggie combo.
Grilled Corn with Herb Butter
A splash of sunshine on the table, this grilled corn with herb butter is sure to please.
Sweet Cheeks Meats
Sweet Cheeks makes their own wonderful hot dogs in house that complement any backyard party. Plus, if there is any day to have the perfect burger, it would be the 4th. Sweet Cheeks will be mixing up some special burger patties packed with deliciousness ready to be picked up and put on your grill.
The Local Butcher suggests you swing in and grab a handful of their 4th of July kebabs that they will be serving. You can choose your marinade, let them soak and throw them right on the grill.
Snake River Brewing
This is the perfect beverage to wash away the day. Fill up the cooler with ice and stock it full of the new Eclipse beer. This special edition summer beer made for the upcoming total solar eclipse is a sure pleaser for your beer drinking party-goers.
Jackson Hole Still Works
The boys at Jackson Hole Still Works have suggested something summery and sweet to serve up to your guests. This is easy to make ahead of time and leave out at a self-serve station. Just mix Highwater Vodka with fresh-squeezed lemonade to taste. Garnish with a sprig of mint, and serve over ice for a refreshing and summer cocktail.
