bit different and has that "wow" factor?

going to include the traditional red, white and blue theme. Why not spice up your recipes for 4th July by preparing a variety of red, white and blue foods.
For example, you could prepare an American flag cake for dessert, decorated with cherries and blueberries, or a delicious dried fruit compote. Or how about a healthy herb-baked tomatoe recipe, or even a mouth-watering tomato and onion soup?
I have a simple yet delicious tomato soup - made with onion, (red food) - that's

to make one substitution.
