Here are some quick 4th of July picnic ideas:
Potato Salad -the classic American barbecue side
Grilled Vegetables with Mint Sauce -for a bit more "exotic" flavor to your veggies
Summer Lemon-Garlic Grilled Chicken-just plain good tasting succulent chicken, how could anyone complain?
Strawberry-Chocolate Layer Cake- make it more festive by adding blueberries to the mix
