Healthy 4th of July Recipe: Chipotle Lime Glazed Salmon Kabob

Written By Jason Kieffer • 1 min read

It’s that time of year again… long summer nights, warm summer days and the celebration of July 4, 1776!

It’s a time where friends and family gather together and cook up our favorite summer recipes as we celebrate our country’s independence with good food, good company and hopefully great fireworks. Often times the 4th of July staples include not-the-healthiest of options like hamburgers, mayonnaise-y potato salads and potato chips. But does 4th of July really have to = unhealthy in order to taste good? Absolutely not! If you are on the hunt for a healthy BBQ this coming Monday, I whipped up my version of the perfect, healthy 4th of July Recipe— Chipotle Lime Glazed Salmon Kabob with Grilled Corn.
