Welcome to Part 2 of our super fabulous 4th of July party food series! Last week, I shared a freakin’ amazing almond streusel-topped blueberry galette that is seriously one of my favorite summer desserts of all time. Today, we’re going savory with this super loaded bacon-y broccoli salad. Because it’s not a national holiday if there’s no bacon involved! At least that’s the rule in our house.
When you think about it, summer is really all about the SNACKS. There’s barbeques, picnics, pool-side munchin’, long road trips…the list of prime snacking opportunities goes on and on. When you’re laying out on a towel workin’ on your tan or playing beach volleyball all day, you’re not trying to sit down and order a giant steak. You’re trying to eat a million snacks and call it a day! I’m a major proponent of snacking all year around, but summer activities especially require some seriously delicious munchies.
