If some sort of dish including nuts is to be part of a July 4th menu, then any of the candidates for inclusion ought to be indigenous to the land whose founding the meal celebrates. Hickory nuts, black walnuts, chestnuts are all likely contenders, and so are pecans. American Indians appreciated them and so did later European explorers and settlers. Here is a hot and well-spiced way to serve them.
Festive (and easy!) for July 4th. Healthy too—made with yogurt and lemon zest.
Who doesn’t love a light, fruity dessert in the summer? Yes, I do have an unbeatable love for rich decadent desserts such as red velvet cake and chocolate but why not take a break for something healthier but still tastes good?
Top this with whipped cream, have it instead of salad for lunch, or pair it with yogurt and honey for a quick yet nutritious breakfast. You’ll feel good about it, I promise.
