20 Spiralized Recipes for July 4th

Inspiralized July 4th Recipes

A week from today, you’re going to be noshing on leftovers from your July 4th barbecue. Hopefully, they’ll be healthy leftovers!

Today, I’m adding 3 more recipes to this list, which I made for Memorial Day BBQ for a total of 20 spiralized ideas.

Plus, I’m sharing some tips on how to make spiralized meals for groups, which can help you create your own yummy meals for July 4th!

Tips for Making Spiralized Meals for Groups

1. Don’t use any heavy sauces, like tomato or creamy.

2. Use light marinades, like vinegar-based dressings.

3. Trim the noodles after you spiralize, to make sure it’s easy to serve.

4. Use half-moons when making pasta salads, to get an elbow macaroni-like texture.

5. If you want to use a mayonnaise or yogurt-based sauce, add it at the last minute.

6. When using cucumber noodles, make sure to pat them down thoroughly to absorb all excess moisture.

7. The best rices for group rice dishes are beets and carrots – they’re light and don’t require any cooking.

8. Use light, whole cheeses (like feta, goat cheese, mozzarella, ricotta salata) instead of melted, heavy cheeses (like cheddar.)

9. Add fresh herbs to add instant freshness, such as basil, mint, dill and chives.

10. Make healthy fries! Use carrots, parsnips, jicama, rutabaga, and other lighter root veggies to make lighter versions of fries (bake them in the oven instead of frying them in a pan.)


Don’t forget to check out these 17 recipes from the Memorial Day BBQ roundup!

1. Italian Zucchini Pasta Salad: this salad is easy to prepare ahead and the longer it sits in the fridge, the softer the zucchini becomes and the more the flavors marinade.

2. Cucumber Noodle Cantaloupe Salad with Avocado and Feta: fruit with cucumbers creates a refreshing side dish or salad that can be shared with a group.

3. Mint Pesto Zucchini Pasta with Goat Cheese: since these zucchini noodles aren’t heated up, they won’t wilt – plus, the pesto is made with mint, which is nice and fresh for that hot July 4th.

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

making a batch of this VEGAN PUMPKIN SNACKING LOAF today 🍞! I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣
