Let’s eat outside! The Fourth of July is upon us, and as we celebrate our independence as a nation, let’s also celebrate our independence from the confines of our homes, get outside in our yards and gather with friends and neighbors to share delicious dishes from the grill!

This week’s Saturday Seven is absolutely loaded down with wonderful inspiration for firing up the grill, dicing, chopping, mixing and sharing our fare with others. Of course, we have our regular 7, but I know you’re going to be inspired by the SIX bonus recipes too!

There are plenty of reasons to get outside this 4th, and you’re sure to find a few good ones here!
