Head to ALDI for Your 4th of July Recipes

To help you get ready for the 4th of July, I teamed up with ALDI for this sponsored blog post and “Indy Style” segment. I’m obsessed with finding high-quality food at affordable prices, and ALDI delivers just that! Whether you’re having a backyard kickback, pool party, or heading out to watch fireworks, ALDI has you covered with everything you need for your sun-filled celebration.

Select some stellar dips
I am all about the dips, especially for parties. Guacamole and hummus are two of my favorite dips. This totally delicious Mediterranean Layer Dip surprises you at every level with ALDI-exclusive Little Salad Bar Hummus, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, and more. Pair it with their Specially Selected pita chips.

To me, no summer party is complete without a crave-worthy guacamole. ALDI offers Little Salad Bar Chunky Guacamole, which is ready to eat and it’s only $2.99! Recently it won the prestigious 2018 Best New Products title, which is based on repurchasing intent, product superiority rating, and consumer appeal.

Arm yourself with at least one main-dish packed with protein
People are honing in on getting more protein these days, even when celebrating. Figure out a main protein that most people will like. I love this grilled chicken salad with fresh blueberries. You can serve it with buns, romaine hearts, and wide strips of vegetable crudités like bell pepper strips or zucchini coins. Every Wednesday, ALDI offers Weekly Fresh Meat Specials with extra-low prices on the best cuts of meat, making it a great time to load up.

Offer icy cold beverages that pack a flavor punch
#RoséAllDay with Trestoria rosé or La Rue Cotes de Provence Rosé, offered exclusively at ALDI. Sip like a superstar while staying comfortably within your budget. Recently, I learned from a sommelier to chill rosé for just 45 minutes before enjoying, to bring out the most taste. ALDI also offers an all-in-one Mimosa beverage for $8.99, which is a perfect pairing at brunch time.

Stay cool with something sweet and refreshing
For dessert, try these make-ahead Freezie Fruit Pops. Simply fill freezer pop molds with your favorite fresh, in-season fruit (right now go for California strawberries, Georgia blueberries, and raspberries). You’ll be amazed by the large variety of produce ALDI carries—even organic. Cover the fruit with 100% fruit juice like apple juice or fruit punch. For the adults, you can kick things up with Sangriana Sangria ($5.99) or the award-winning Exquisite Collection Sauvignon Blanc ($9.99) in place of juice.

Attention Indy locals:
ALDI is in the midst of remodeling 22 stores in Indianapolis and the surrounding metropolitan area to give shoppers a faster, smarter and easier shopping experience. In fact, 13 stores have been upgraded so far to feature the new ALDI store look, including a modern design and more robust produce, dairy, and bakery sections. The latest local grand reopening included the Indianapolis store on Lafayette Road. ALDI plans to open several new stores in the area this year.

Head to ALDI, where you can get in and out fast and save money on quality summer essentials.
