carden asadaThe Fourth of July is almost here! Can you believe it? When I was growing up, my family and I would always go to my next door neighbor’s house for a Fourth of July party that their family would host every year. Our friends and neighbors from our street would all attend, and the house would be filled to bursting with people. We would gather around the kitchen counters, sit out on the backyard deck, lounge on chairs in the yard—you get the idea. Of course, I haven’t even mentioned the food yet! Chips and dip, ribs, hot dogs, hamburgers, cookies, brownies, crostini, potato salad, vegetables, and everything else you could imagine. By the time it was dark and time for fireworks, everyone was as full as they could possibly be. Good food and friends—that’s all you really need for a great party! The fireworks didn’t hurt, either!

If you’re looking for another dish to serve at your own Fourth of July party, then this Carne Asada with Grilled Corn Salsa will be a real crowd pleaser! It only takes thirty minutes to make, too, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the party.
