I hope you'll all enjoy this menu. It is meant as a Fourth of July afternoon barbecue. My daughter is away, so my husband and I will be getting up early to go hiking (and take in some of the distinct beauty of our country) and then coming home to grill and maybe catch some fireworks. Enjoy & let me know if you liked any of these recipes.
Spinach & Crab Guacamole w/ Cucumber "Chips"
I am going to make my all-time favorite Guac recipe and add chilled crab to it. I seriously can not wait to eat it.
Grilled Chicken w/ Figgy Barbecue Sauce
To make the BBQ sauce AIP, skip the tomato paste and replace the safflower oil. I think it will still be incredible. To make the Sweet Potato Salad AIP, skip the cumin and paprika, replacing with thyme, and skip the nuts. (Ever since vacation in Canada, I am really inspired to cook with maple syrup, which is what caught my eye in this recipe.) To make the salsa AIP, skip the jalapeno and obviously the tortilla chips. I plan to serve the salsa like a side dish.
This could not be more simple or cute. And it is naturally AIP.
