For most of the year, I avoid wearing the color red. It simply doesn't look great with my coloring. However, around the Fourth of July is when I make an exception, I like to wear red, white, and blue — just as I like to cook dishes in these all-American colors. With its creamy white cheese and deep ruby berries, this easy appetizer would be a welcome addition to any festive spread for the Fourth. It's a super quick snack that's absolutely scrumptious. Be sure to grill extra bread, I was a couple slices short and hated to see the last of the gooey cheese and fresh relish go to waste. If you like brie, this recipe is a must make.
