link-o-rama, fourth of july edition

It's our patriotic duty to barbecue and picnic this weekend—rain and muggy weather be damned. So what to make? Here are some links for inspiration:

Horseradish potato salad (with fetching purple potatoes) [via Smitten Kitchen]

Maple-bourbon barbecue sauce for grilled meat or to swirl into baked beans [via Pithy & Cleaver]

Fun summer drinks (margaritas made with beer, rhubarb-basil cocktails, mango coladas) [via The Kitchn]

Three words to start your salivary glands: charred onion dip [via Lottie & Doof]

And here are a few of my favorite summer recipes from the newly-reorganized Dinner Party archives:

Basil lemonade
Gordon's Cup
Pimms Cups

Watermelon aguas frescas

Pineapple salsa

Salami-wrapped Mean Beans
Sausage rolls
Tuna-stuffed peppers

Main dishes and sides:

Oven-fried picnic chicken
Pasta salad with chickpeas, tomato, and feta

Shrimp rolls
