July 4th is all about the celebration of America’s freedom. But the holiday has also become synonymous with festivities such as parades, fireworks, festivals and backyard barbeques. For the perfect celebration this July 4th, Traina Foods offers fun and simple ideas.

Kicked up Burgers and Dogs —
All-American picnics and barbeques are certain to include hamburgers and hot dogs this Independence Day, but Traina Foods suggests adding a little flair to traditional burgers and dogs. For example, top a burger with cheese, Traina Foods New Sun Dried Apricot BBQ Sauce, bacon, and grilled onions or even onion rings for an extreme BBQ burger, or for plant-forward and vegetarian dieters, Traina Foods Sriracha Veggie Burgers are sure to fit the bill. For a list of out-of-the-box ways to top hot dogs, check out Traina Foods “Hot Dog Rebel” topping ideas.
Out of the Ordinary Side Dishes —
Get creative when bringing a side dish to a pot luck or when hosting a 4th of July festival. Traina Foods Easy Goat Cheese Salad with California Sun Dried Tomatoes is a crowd pleaser and this Caprese Pasta Salad using Traina Foods Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup (or try the new Gourmet Sicilian Organic Ketchup with Italian-inspired herbs) is the perfect “short-cut” dish with a total wow factor.
To Die For Desserts —
Summer and peaches go hand in hand! Traina Foods Sun Dried Peach Pie Recipe is perfectly portable so there’s no muss, no fuss! A Cheese and Dried Fruit Board looks oh-so-fancy, but requires very little work — bonus!
The best kinds of parties, whether a big 4th of July bash or an intimate gathering, are best when the host and guests are relaxed. Casual yet interactive games can help those that don’t know each other yet become fast friends. For small shindigs there the guests are already close, arrange the party to be a “make yourself at home” type of format. Set out food, beverage mixes or a cooler with multiple drink options and encourage guests to help themselves to anything.
