Favorite 4th of July Recipes 

For the 4th of July, I decided to update the classic potato salad using the Zesty Garlic Chips with carrots, beets and potatoes for a delicious new twist on grilled veggies. I also made Salmon Cakes with a dill pickle sauce using the Kosher Dill Spears. These delicious recipe ideas are bound to be a hit that paired so well with these bold and flavorful pickles.
