Cookout Recipes for Celebrating
Independence Day!

Appetizers

True Lime Tomato Salsa
Skip the store-bought stuff. This salsa is light, refreshing, and a great topping for just about anything!

Diane Hendericks’ Spicy Chickpeas
An excellent guilt-free snack that won’t make anybody too full for the main dish.

Salads

Savory Melon Salad
This salad combines a delectable contrast of sweet juicy melon and salty cheese.

Greek Pasta Salad
A staple at cookouts, but this one comes with a True Lemon twist! Here’s another version to try as well.

Green Papaya Salad
For something a little unique, but oh-so-crunchy and delicious.

Pomegranate Spring Lettuce Salad with True Lemon Vinaigrette
A tasty salad recipe that is sure to impress!

Side Dishes

Corn on the Cob with Parmesan and True Lime Garlic & Cilantro
Although this can be made in a skillet on the stove, it’s even better on the grill. This corn recipe is amazing too.

Creamy True Lemon Coleslaw
A crunchy classic that’s a wonderful contrast to the salty-sweet flavor of BBQ sauce. Want another creative twist? Try this Red Cabbage Slaw with True Orange Ginger Dressing.

True Lime Garlic & Cilantro Deviled Eggs
The recipe is halfway down the page. It’s so easy to make, and you will love it!

True Lemon Zucchini
Light, tasty, and a fantastic gluten-free side.

Main Dishes

Spicy True Lime and Honey Wings
You don’t even need a grill to make these tasty wings!

Shrimp for the Barby
We go nuts for seafood, especially when it’s made with a delicious char-grilled flavor.

Bulgur Veggie Burgers with True Lime Garlic & Cilantro Mayonnaise
Have a vegetarian at your BBQ party? No problem. These are so much better than the frozen store-bought alternative.

Tropical Chicken Kebabs
Chicken is a little more fun when skewered with fresh vegetables.

Citrus Grilled Chicken with Red White & Blueberry Salad
All the parts you need for a special Independence Day meal!

Easy True Lemon Chicken Marinade
If you’re choosing chicken for the grill, start with this super simple marinade! This is why we love marinades so much, but the way.


Need a little extra help in staying healthy at the cookout party you’re throwing (or attending)? We’ve got you covered.

Always go a little overboard when celebrating the holiday? We have some great hangover cures right here.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
