Healthy Summer Recipes for the 4th of July

Pull out the checkered tablecloth and celebrate summer by planning the perfect picnic for your family, friends and neighbors by incorporating healthy appetizers, salads and mains. Whether your plate is paper plastic or fine china, fill half of it with fruits and vegetables, and show your guest the importance of a well-balanced meal.

An abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables are in season so make sure that your plate is brimming with watermelon, raspberries and corn! And if you can't decide on what you want to make for future summer cook-outs, try the USDA's recipe finder for inspiration. Check out some of our favorite summer recipes:
