Easy Summer Menu for Upcoming Fourth of July Celebrations

The summer is all about the outdoors, picnics and BBQ gatherings. This time is also busy for us homemakers and moms and I have a fabulous suggestion for preparing an easy summer menu for your upcoming Fourth of July party or for an impromptu party at home.

At Walmart, I don’t only find groceries but also prepared meals like fried and rotisserie chicken at the Walmart Deli. These chicken options are tasty and convenient to make an easy summer menu and honestly who doesn’t like chicken. At home, we eat chicken at least twice a week and we love it.

At the Walmart Deli there are several options to choose from single pieces of chicken, buckets of chicken with the option to add sides, as well as bulk purchases with up to one hundred pieces, you just need to make your order in advance by calling or visiting the store.

I opted to buy a bucket divided between hot wings and drummettes and chicken tenders with a side of potato wedges. I also added to my purchase a rotisserie chicken in order to offer variety to the menu.

In my opinion, a party menu also needs to have fresh options and hassle free homemade sides to add your personal touch to the meal,  so I am adding to the menu tomatoes on the vine stuffed with Greek-style orzo salad and a special sauce that pairs very well with both rotisserie chicken and fried chicken.

This sauce is inspired on a Peruvian garlic sauce that typically is offered when serving oven roasted chicken and complements very nicely with this easy summer menu suggestion for your Fourth of July party. This sauce I have named as Jalapeño Garlic Aioli, made with a mayo base, lemon juice, fresh jalapeños, herbs and garlic cloves.

  1. Peel the garlic cloves and add them to the blender. Cut the jalapeño and add to the blender with the garlic, parsley, and the lemon peel.
  2. Pour the mayo, the lemon juice, and blend. If you feel requires liquid add water as needed yet sauce needs to be velvety, not runny.
  3. Serve the Jalapeño Garlic Aioli on a nice bowl and place inside the fridge until ready to serve.

This sauce is full of flavor and not very spicy if you prefer not to add the jalapeño just replace with a small piece of green bell pepper. In order to add color to the menu,  I am also suggesting to have a dish using raw tomatoes and orzo salad. Both complement well and being the tomatoes in season makes this option a nice addition to the meal. Preparing these stuffed tomatoes with orzo salad is very simple and you can make the salad a day in advance to save time.

Those tomatoes look fantastic and ideal for the summer months! I get a rotisserie chicken at Walmart regularly, saves so much time and there is so much you can do with it.
