Jo Lynne, thank you SO much for including me in this! If you try the potato salad, I really hope you enjoy it. It got rave reviews at our bbq. Happy 4th and thanks again!
Thanks for including my fruit kabobs! And what a great list. Looking at it is making me hungry – AND I JUST ATE DINNER! 🙂
Looks great! Avocados are my new favorite food, I’ll be sure to try these sometime this summer. Glad you made it back to PA safe and sound:)
That punch sounds so refreshing… I might have to come up with a reason to make it.
Those look like fantastic recipes! I can hardly wait to try that first one. Just FYI… the link for the yogurt parfait goes to the punch recipe.
Ooops! Thanks! I fixed that.
What a great round-up!!! Keep them coming. Stumbled this for all to see.
Thank you for these great recipes–they look delicious! I will be sharing a link in my post about healthy 4th of July cocktails tomorrow at http://www.eatdrinkandbeskinny.com. Thank you so much — Cheers!
Thanks so much!
I made the chipotle lime chicken skewers last week and they were a hit with the family! So good! Have a great 4th!
That’s awesome! So glad to hear.
The potato salad looks great. My simple and delicious recipe for the 4th is blueberries and strawberries on opposite sides of the plate and whip cream (sugar free) in the middle – red, white and blue.
That’s a great idea! Simple and cute and yummy!
