Many celebrate the Fourth of July by grilling out, and spending as much time as possible outside!
The Fourth of July got me thinking about what I’d make to enjoy for a summer cookout. First, I’d need to pick up a new grill!
First, I would grill up some bison burgers — maybe even stuffing them with some avocado and/or cheese!
Of course, you could substitute beef, turkey, etc. — whatever you like best will suffice!
Next up — grilled veggies! I’m not sure vegetables taste better prepared any other way — and preparing them is SO easy! Just coat them with olive oil or coconut oil and grill until they reach the desired consistency.
This recipe is described as: a combination of apple cider vinegar and the natural sweetness from the added apple makes it the perfect sweet and sour salad to complement your grilled burgers and brats.
As an additional side, and to increase the veggie quotient — I might opt to make some bacon-wrapped asparagus, which is ridiculously divine!
I was curious as to whether this recipe could be grilled — and found this recipe that suggests that yes — these can be made on the grill or in the oven!
NorCal Margaritas are the perfect summer drink, and I think the slightly sweet lime flavor would be a perfect complement to the grilled flavor of the cookout dishes.
After all that, if I managed to somehow still have room for dessert, I would indulge in a Paleo banana pudding — like this from Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations: almond butter banana pudding.
What’s on your picnic table?
