Independence Day parties, sparklers, fireworks, picnics in the park, beach blanket brunch…however you plan to celebrate, it’s going to involve food. It might as well be delicious, so here are my 5 suggestions for must-make menu items.

Dorothy's Fresh Blueberry Pie | ShockinglyDelicious.com1. Blueberry Pie: No matter what else you do, you must make my Fresh Blueberry Pie. This is the dessert that pie maven Evan Kleiman called “genius,” and it’s a game-changer.

Grilled Potato Salad | ShockinglyDelicious.com2. Potato Salad: Grill those spuds. Trust me.

Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad with Dates, Parmesan and Smoked Almonds | ShockinglyDelicious.com3. Stunning Slaw: Kale and Brussels Sprout Slaw with Dates, Parmesan and Smoked Almonds. Yes, it is a mouthful to say, and worth every syllable.

Nutella Ice Cream on ShockinglyDelicious.com4. Homemade Ice Cream: Nutella Ice Cream. Don’t even question this. It’s a must-make.

Red, White and Blue Fruit and Cheese Salad | ShockinglyDelicious.com5. Fruit Salad: Red, White and Blue Fruit Salad. Because these are the colors of the day, and this is delicious and healthy.
