A Fourth of July Dinner
The fennel sliced up so fair, the tri-tip roasting in air
If you want to bedeck yourself in the red, white, and blue or belt out “The Star-Spangled Banner” on July Fourth, that’s your call—but leave the food to us. Here we depart from the traditional burgers and potato salad for a menu that’s easy to assemble and just as crowd-pleasing. Plus it can all be prepped in advance. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is staying in tune for the national anthem.
