We LOVE the 4th of July - Especially the FOOD!!
Here are some wonderful recipes that grace our tables all summer when we like to have a barbecue --

Spaghetti Salad:

1 pkg spaghetti noodles - cooked, drained and cooled
1-2 chopped tomatoes
sliced olives
chopped pepperoni
fresh grated Parmesan
1-2 diced avocado's
bottle of Caesar or Creamy Italian dressing

Mix all ingredients together and add desired dressing till coated.  Stir lots because everything tends to mingle at the bottom! ;)  You can add other ingredients to this as well...such as chopped green onions, feta cheese or any shredded cheese, ham instead of pepperoni.  ENJOY!!

BBQ Turkey Tenders:
mmm - these are a tried and true FAVORITE at our house!!

2-3 lbs. turkey tenders or chicken breasts
1 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 c. or 1 can lemon lime soda
1 1/2 T. horseradish

Marinate in Ziploc bag - the LONGER the better.  Toss on the grill and cook till done!  These are sooo yummy and mouth watering - ENJOY!!!!
