The Etta + Billie team and I pulled together a list of recipes to try out this Fourth of July weekend. Hope you’re inspired and please share any photos or recipes you think we should try!

Marinated Mozzarella
Tomatoes and cheese is always an epic combination but this recipe takes it up a notch. Perfect for summer evenings as a shared snack or a light dinner.

Garlic, Rosemary and Chili Almonds
The Etta + Billie team has some serious snackers (we talk about food at least 2-3 times a day) and our intern loves this recipe because it keeps guest happily munching while you complete the meal. Caution though, these nuts may develop into a serious addiction. Bonus: points since these are done on the stove top, you won’t be sweating intensely over a cranked up oven.

Grilled Corn and Nectarine Salad
Take advantage of all the fresh corn and nectarines out there with this delightful salad. A really great side for grilled meat.

Watermelon, Feta and Black Olive Salad
I pretty much love anything Nigella Lawson creates and this salad is no exception. A lovely combination of sweet watermelon and salty olives and feta.

Grilled New York Strips with Dubbel Butter
As part of a great American tradition, no 4th of July celebration would be complete without some form of grilled meat. Or beer. So this recipe kills two birds with one stone, and is sounds AMAZING.

Honey Mustard Vegetable Kabobs
This recipe seems like a great way to add a twist to a traditional veggie grill plus it will satisfy both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. The bittersweet flavor of honey mustard, perfectly complements the smoky grilled vegetables.

Maple Bourbon Brown Butter Peach Pie
Touches on a great American tradition but definitely not your ordinary Peach Pie. Lightly sauced with maple and bourbon with a fine sweet crunch of pecan streusel. Ready to be topped with vanilla ice cream.

Last but not least, the cocktails!

Cardamom Moscow Mule
A few of my favorite things, all in one cocktail – Ginger Beer, Cardamom and Lime. Try it with Bourbon for a little more depth.

Strawberry Basil Vodka Smash
A nice alternative way to use in season strawberries and basil.
