Fourth of July Pinspiration

Ok Dolls tomorrow is the 4th of July so I thought I would give you a little pinspiration and a couple of my FAVE recipes.

I hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July!

 Watermelon and Feta Salad

  • 6 cups cubed or melon balled watermelon
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Toss everything together in a large serving bowl carefully to avoid breaking up the feta too much.
Peach Mango Pineapple Sangria

Peach Mango White Sangria
Double, triple, or quadruple the recipe if making for a larger gathering or crowd
1 bottle white wine (chardonnay, pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc, or similar)
1/3 cup peach schnapps
1/4 cup sugar, or to taste (or stevia, agave, or another sweetener)
3/4 cup mango chunks, frozen (you could use fresh but save money and buy frozen, plus they act as “ice cubes”)
3/4 cup fresh sliced peaches
3/4 cup pineapple chunks
1/3 cup pineapple juice (use whatever is in the can)
Mix all ingredients together and chill the night before so the flavors can marry and the fruit can soak up the wine
I just served this at a party in California and it was a big hit!!
