Plan Your Forth of July Menu Without a Recipe

Fourth of July, like any good American holiday, revolves around food and entertaining. And while it’s fun to spend time in the kitchen, poring over a cookbook while your friends lounge in your backyard is not an ideal way to spend your holiday. Plus, what if you won’t get around to grocery shopping and prepping and cooking till the end of the week? Those cookbooks may just be holding you back.

So, in the spirit of independence, we’re going rogue, ditching the recipes, and we’re revisiting this collection of 15 of our favorite recipe-less dishes that make for perfect Fourth fare. With these guidelines, you’ll spend less time making sure you got the exact details right and more time enjoying the afternoon.
