Looking for a refreshing July 4th recipe that is super simple and super delicious?!  Check out my favorite!  Only 4 ingredients for extra ease!​

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays of the year…and not just because it’s two days after my birthday and one day before my anniversary!  I love festive gatherings, time with friends, and always…the amazing July 4th recipe ideas!

Today, I’m joining up with some friends to share our favorite July 4th recipe ideas with you, too!  If you’ve joined me fromTater Tots and Jello, thanks for clicking over.  I’m so glad you’re here!  I loved her July 4th recipe and am putting that on my list to try!

Summertime and watermelon just go hand in hand!  The only part I don’t love is the messy process of cutting up the watermelon.  So sometimes I cheat and buy the pre-cut bowls from the deli.  Most of the time, I just get my hubby to do it for me!  Haha!

It is literally one of the most refreshing, summer treats and super healthy too!

My very favorite way to eat watermelon is as a salad.  Bonus?

You only need four ingredients for this festive, red, white, and blue July 4th recipe!

How to Make an Easy and Tasty July 4th Salad

Ingredients:

  • Watermelon, cut into bite-size chunks
  • Crumbled gorgonzola or feta cheese
  • Blueberries
  • Fresh mint leaves

Favorite July 4th Recipe:

Combine all three ingredients into a bowl and serve chilled!  Add some mint leaves for garnish.  (It tastes even better the second day with a hint of mint flavor that marinates through!)

How easy is that for a July 4th recipe?!

I’ll be the first to admit, if you aren’t a cheese-lover, this probably won’t be your favorite recipe.  But I don’t think I’ve ever tried a kind of cheese that I didn’t love (except for a random, really runny one in France; I don’t remember what it was called!).

Gorgonzola cheese has that extra zing to it that I really love and the mix of salty and sweet makes this a favorite for me!  

I like to buy the fat-free gorgonzola crumbled cheese in an effort to make this a little more healthy!

Blueberries are the perfect addition to this July 4th recipe. Plus, there is the benefit of the red, white, and blue!

It makes a festive salad for your Fourth of July picnic!

I keep the leftovers around for an extra day or so and this July 4th recipe makes a great lunch for the next day too.  Win win!  I leave some watermelon plain because my kiddos haven’t yet discovered a love for gorgonzola cheese (haha!) but it does make a nice treat for the whole family!

Next time you pass a roadside produce stand, grab yourself a big watermelon and enjoy!

So refreshing and extra easy too!  There are some great July 4th recipe ideas from some of my friends today too.  Next, I hope you’ll hop over to Most Lovely Things.  It looks SO delicious and I’m adding this one to my list to try too!
