Sorta feeling the progression of the seasons this time of year.

That one day in June when you realize it’s still light out at 9 PM turns into that day you realize it’s the Summer Soltice, the day with the most daylight, that turns into the day that’s the last day of the month of June, then bang, it’s July already and then the intermittent neighborhood fireworks signal the impending 4th of July holiday and when it’s all over and the last pop has popped and the final bit of shrapnel has fallen to the ground, you realize the days are now getting shorter.

But, hey, it’s the first Wednesday of the month and time for Wedwand “Food on the First.” Gonna share a couple simple 4 ingredient recipes to honor the 4th of July.



½ Cup Blueberries
½ Cup Sliced Strawberries
1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
Honey to taste (Or as Herb Alpert might have sang in 1965, A Taste of Honey) Wedwand recommends a 4 second squeeze from the honey container.

Stir all ingredients, chill at least an hour and serve.

Add chia seeds and vanilla to the yogurt prior to chilling.
Add cheerios or your favorite cereal
Stir in some cashew butter to the yogurt mix

Try it for a nice healthy Patriotic start to the 4th of July.

And, here’s another 4 ingredient recipe:



8 oz package Sweet Cherry Tomatoes halved and quartered
2 ripe Avocados diced to about same size as the tomatoes
6 Green Onions sliced thin all the way up through the green part,
Booker T & the MG’s style
4 oz cheddar cheese diced
A Splash of balsamic vinegar

Lightly toss all the ingredients to mix and bring together the flavors

Here’s what I mean by diced cheese:

Sorry for the lousy picture of this but by the time I got the camera, the Tomoacado concoction was mostly devoured:

I suppose you could serve this on crackers or as a dip, but we enjoyed it straight up.

Have a happy 4th of July.

If you tried and liked either of these simple 4 ingredient recipes, let Wedwand know. If you have a 4 ingredient recipe to share, by all means, please do.
