10 Recipes for a Rocking Fourth of July

Whether you stake your claim at the perfect fireworks-watching spot early or feast at home before heading to the show, you’ll need some quick-cooking, festive recipes to sustain you until sunset.

We love a classic cookout for the holiday with pasta salads, baked beans and burgers, but grilled marinated chicken is fun picnic fare (napkins necessary) and an iceberg wedge with blue cheese dressing lends a traditional, but super simple, vibe.

Here are our picks for a fun-loving Fourth. Don’t forget the popsicles!
