4th of July Picnic – Make it Good Fun and Good for You!

Donna Quirk, RD LD

Chicken Slaw

4th of July is just around the corner and that the grills are about to be fired up to make some great food.  Are you looking for some healthier and great tasting alternatives to the traditional burgers and creamy potato salad?  I’ve put together a menu with links to the recipes.  Try one or try them all!

Have a Great and Safe 4th of July!

Apple Crunch Mix  A crunchy snack alternative.

Lemon Chicken with Cabbage-Corn Slaw

BBQ Potatoes I recommend substituting olive oil for the margarine or butter in this recipe.

Grilled Vegetable Kabobs  The grill is fired up so use it to cook the vegetables too.

Jicama Melon Salad – a personal favorite.  Use mandarin oranges, drained, to make it easier.
