Let me guess...
For your Shabbat July 4th celebration you are having or attending a potluck. Great idea!
Whether the potluck is being held on Shabbat or after havdala while you wait for the fireworks these ideas for appetizers, salads, mains and desserts are easy to make and can either be eaten cold or will reheat well on a plata or blech.
Typical Shabbat dips, such as hummus and guacamole, are perfect for your July 4th potluck. These dips will get gobbled down so quickly, if you have a large group, you may want to think about making a double batch.
These fresh salads are perfect when made in advance and served on Shabbat for your July 4th potluck. As these salads marinade in the fridge the flavors become full and the salads become even more delicious!!
In terms of mains, for this Buffalo Chicken Sandwich you can use leftover chicken from Friday night and you can also eat the sandwiches cold so that you don't have to worry about reheating. As another option, a Cauliflower Pastrami Kugel reheats well and the pastrami gives the perfect amount of spice.
These dessert are perfect for July 4th. Whether its our red, white, and blue Watermelon Almond Tart, no baking required, our version of a Whoopie Pie our an all-American Apple Pie, your desserts will be the hit at the potluck!!
