Happy Independence Day, America!
It’s BBQs and parties up and down the block. What are your plans for this awesome holiday? I’m already salivating for the steaks that are coming off the grill. My kids can have the hamburgers and hotdogs. Really, the best part of this holiday is hanging out with family and friends, and of course, all the yummy food.
If you’re still struggling to come up with a recipe to bring for whatever picnic or potluck you need to attend, why not check out my recipe books? You’ll find an Aztec Salad that is simple to make (see below), or recipes for guacamole that will go perfectly with some tortilla chips.
AZTEC CORN SALAD from HappyHerbivore.com
2 cups frozen corn, thawed
15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup Quinoa, cooked
3 tsp lime juice
Combine all ingredients except lime juice and chill. Add lime juice before serving.
If you’d like to see it done watch me do it in this YouTube video.

If you haven’t downloaded my recipe books, now’s a good chance. You can find Hot in the Kitchen and Puerto Rican Recipes on my Free Reads page or click here.
Finally, this day isn’t complete without listening to at least one rendition of The Star Spangled Banner. Here is Marvin Gaye with an amazing performance. Do you have any favorite performances of the National Anthem? Let me know.
