O say, can you see a Fourth of July gathering without a few appetizers? Consider making a trio of these appetizers and dips the centerpiece of your table. Serve each on red, white, and blue dishes to create a festive spread.
Nothing says summer like a salad that explodes with flavor from fresh fruits, vegetables, and greens. If you’re making ahead, be sure to keep any dressings on the side until you’re ready to serve.

We collected a variety of main courses to suit different Fourth of July plans. Burgers are great if you plan to fire up the grill; sandwiches, wraps, and pasta salads are great for making ahead, as they’ll travel well to the park or the potluck.
While main dishes are the star of the show, no Fourth of July menu would be complete without a side dish or two. Consider classics like potato salad as well as more inventive sides like chilled summer soups.
Warm weather calls for cool treats. These fruit-forward desserts feature fresh berries, melon, and other fruits that hit peak sweetness during the summer months.
