The 4th of July is a summer holiday, a popular time for family and friends to gather, and the celebration of our nation's independence. That combination means that there are a lot of things that can make a recipe perfect for the 4th of July.

First, almost any summer recipe works for this holiday. We'll all be outside, sweltering in the heat, trying to find shade, and generally enjoying each others' company. So recipes with fruit, grilled meats and fruits, BBQ, and other classic summertime favorites always work.

In addition, sweet treats like fruit trays and dips, ice cream and ice cream-based treats, and even cupcakes, cakes, and cookies are always welcome at any event, especially one like the 4th.

Finally, anything with the colors red, white, and blue is always a winner because it fits the theme of the holiday so well.
