Happy 4th of July y’all! This is one of my favorite holidays! I love any excuse to decorate the house all red, white, and blue including my food! This is our second 4th of July in our house and we are finally settled in so we decided to have a bbq to celebrate this 4th of July with friends and family.

 

I wanted to make a side dish that would for sure be a firecracker hit at dinner! This watermelon blueberry feta salad dish is refreshing, sweet, and tasty for a wonderful bbq side dish.
