July is bursting with sunshine, celebrations, and the vibrant taste of summer. Make these memorable meals to celebrate the season. During these hot days, we’re craving fresh yet flavorful dishes. You’ll need some recipe inspo for your 4th of July family get-togethers, as well as casual backyard barbecues and everyday eats. This summer, we’re focused on eating well with these July recipes.

Fire up the grill and gather your freshest seasonal produce, and prepare for the tastiest July yet. Refreshing salads, grilled delights, and cool beverages set the stage for outdoor dining.

Don’t forget Independence Day classics for a nod to classic American fare—with a Western twist, of course. At your 4th of July festivities, bring out this creamy, zesty coleslaw paired with a veggie-heavy take on the classic hot dog. Fresh seafood options add a coastal vibe, perfect for a summer evening—think tuna poke cracker appetizers and fresh fish grilled to perfection for sandwiches

We’ve got a strawberry lemonade your family will love, as well as a nonalcholic take on the Moscow Mule. Or, play bartender for guests with a spicy tropical cocktail or a mojito that celebrates summer fruit.

For those with a sweet tooth, this month’s desserts range from light treats like Mexican Pineapple Pops to cool you down poolside to indulgent and oh-so-chocolatey, peanut buttery Moose Tracks Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

We hope you love these 35 July recipes:
