Must Have Dishes for this 4th of July


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.)

Hatch Taqueria and Tequilas
Lets start by saying that every party needs a starter, and we are going with Hatch’s guacamole —a great way to get the barbecue started.

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.







About Author

From Park City, to Tahoe, to Jackson I found myself floating like a snowflake from one ski town to the next. But once I arrived in Jackson in 2006 I knew that this was home. Growing up ski racing and traveling the world, from a young age I learned to love all sorts of food and at least try everything once. I loved being in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother when I was home, and got my kitchen work ethic from them. Some of my favorite dishes I often refer to as “the kitchen sink”, everything from the fridge, no recipe, just winging it and throwing in what moves me. Now I spend most of my time chasing my husband and two little boys around the mountains we call home. We love digging in the dirt, cruising through the farmers markets and cooking outside. My house and kitchen are always open and often filled with laughter from family and friends.
