Don’t let that Fourth of July BBQ be your excuse to chow down on hot dogs and potato salad! There are tons of healthy, fun, easy recipes to make and serve that are still BBQ-friendly. I love this chimichurri sauce- which is not only made from a whole slew of nutrient-packed ingredients, but can be used a ton of different ways. This Argentinian favorite is great as a marinade for anything from lamb to fish to tofu, but I like adding a bit more oil & vinegar to the mix to make it a real taste-exploding salad dressing.
This recipe is really an unbelievable lineup of incredible-for-you foods, including blood sugar regulating cilantro and potassium rich apple cider vinegar which helps break down fats. What an amazingly tasty way to get them all into your diet! It couldn’t be easier, you pop all the ingredients in the food processor and voila!
I recommend making 2-6 hours before you plan to serve it so it can sit and let the flavors really develop. And feel free to play with it- pump up the lemon, add some other herbs- you really can’t go wrong. Trust me, one bite of this and no one will be reaching for a cheeseburger.
