It will soon be 4th of July, our Independence Day in the U.S. And all of you readers in Canada are getting ready to celebrate your Canada Day. Clearly, we’re in the wonderful season of summer. The time of year when fun, food, fireflies (we actually call them lightning bugs), favorite swimming holes, and long sunny days all combine to make you feel like you’ve been given a fabulous gift. To celebrate summer and our independence stand on July 4th, 1776, we want the tastiest and prettiest gluten-free 4th of July recipes! And of course, some of those recipes will also bear the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue. I’ve updated this collection of recipes so that you have plenty of fantastic options!
While Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, 4th of July is probably my next favorite. Both are focused on the fun and meaningful combination of food, family, and friends—not necessarily in that order—without the pressure of non-stop events and gift giving like some holidays.
Instead of creating a new recipe or sharing a new recipe roundup, I’ve decided to update this gluten-free recipe roundup once again to give you the tastiest and prettiest 4th of July recipes for the holiday, or for summer in general!
