Get Fired Up For The 4th With a Great Menu

It’s easy to put together a great spread for July 4. Whether you get a thrill from making everything from scratch or prefer to leave the work to us, we’ve got you covered. Approach #1: Let us do the work! You provide the grill, we provide ready-to-grill meat, seafood, veggies and more. Now, it won’t be too easy for you — you’ll have the hard job of choosing from our tantalizing variety of grill-ready kabobs—plain or marinated, with or without fresh veggies. Want to expand the choices? Toss an assortment of our grill-ready specialty burgers on the grill too. Next, stop by the seafood case for some marinated salmon, responsibly farmed and ready to grill, and then head over to produce for some grill-ready veggie kabobs. Don’t forget to pick up great side dishes, bakery-made buns and all kinds of condiments. Grab a watermelon for dessert and you’re ready for guests! Approach #2: Make some, buy some. You provide the grill, you do all the hard work. But again, we make it easy—just check out our favorite recipes for the 4th below to get a head start on your menu plan. And remember that we grind our meat fresh several times a day right in the store from the same quality meat you see in our case.

Hey Alli, many of the recipes in this list are gluten free and dairy free. For burger recipe, pick up some gluten free buns and you are good to go. If you are looking for something specific, we have over 600 recipes in our recipe database that are gluten free and dairy free: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/arsearch-results.php. Also, you can use our advance recipe search page to find specific types of recipes that are also gluten free and dairy free: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/advanced-search.php. At the bottom of every recipe, we list in the tags if it meets gluten free or dairy free. Hope this helps. Happy 4th!

It sure would be nice to have a gluten free menu and shopping list combination. I am using online Gluten free recipes and a shopping list on my phone.
