The 5 Best Dips and Snacks for your 4th of July BBQ —Part 2

Hello! Welcome to Beyond Soy!

The first part of this post can be found here. Enjoy these recipes!

Buffalo Wings

Buffalo wings are a staple of BBQs, but they can be time consuming and tricky to make. Not these wings—they are simple to make and easy to eat! Just marinate and bake in the oven. You can change the sauce to make them as hot as you want. To make them even easier, line your baking sheet with aluminum foil for a quick clean up.

What You’ll Need

  • 3/4 cup flour

  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 20 chicken wings

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup hot pepper sauce (use whatever sauce you’d like to get the level of spiciness you’d like)

Watermelon Feta Salad

I’ll be the first to admit that watermelon salad isn’t for everyone, but the combination of flavors can taste just right on a hot summer day. This salad pairs well with a cold drink and some good friends.

  • 4 oz feta cheese

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
