A Picnic for the Fourth of July

A Picnic for the Fourth of July

Dine in the glow of the bottle rockets’ red glare

Pledge your allegiance to fresh summer corn and juicy tomatoes. Celebrate Americana in the form of macaroni salad. On this Fourth of July, wave your picnic blanket like a flag. Then sit on it. This make-ahead menu is easy, delicious, and terribly seasonal. Pack up your food, stake out your spot under the fireworks, and proclaim your patriotism with your fork.
