4th of July may be one of our favorite holidays, as it’s centered around the 5 “F”s: freedom, friends, family, fireworks, and, of course, food! As we’re grilling out this Independence Day, we’ll be looking to fill out our menus with delicious 4th of July side dish recipes. Burgers and brats are great, but what would they be without delicious summer side dishes, like Southern Tomato Pie, 7 Layer Salad, and French Onion Corn on the Cob?
Of course every summer party needs one of the classic summer salad recipes: a pasta salad recipe, potato salad recipe, or slaw recipe. We also love grilled side dishes that can be cooked alongside our proteins, like Paula’s Garlic Grilled Tomatoes or her Saturday Night Vidalia Onions. And of course we can’t go without classic cookout side dishes, like a Southern macaroni and cheese recipe. Here we’re sharing all those and more for the ultimate selection of 4th of July side dish recipes.
Do you have your 4th of July side dishes planned already? Will you be adding any of the below recipes into your menu? Let us know in the comments below what you’ll be making and how you’ll be celebrating.
We hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July. Now, let freedom ring, y’all!
