I planned the menu for my family's 4th of July barbecue this year. Strangely enough, to celebrate the birth of our country, we ate the food of people who are supposed to be our enemies (well, kind of). The menu was mostly vegetarian-friendly, but I suggested a chicken recipe for the meateaters.

We had:
Lebanese chicken that was marinated in yogurt and spices, and then roasted and served with a garlic sauce inspired by Al-Wazir in LA.
Sweet potato and chickpea patties (so good!)
Pita chips and hummus. The hummus was store-bought but it was lovely and smooth.
Grape tomatoes in balsamic vinegar and olive oil with fresh basil.
Bulgur salad with roasted portabello mushrooms, red pepper, and zucchini
Syrian potato salad

For dessert, we had strawberry shortcake with homemade shortcake, fresh strawberries, and vanilla ice cream.
