Aunt Suzy says

For some reason we decided to grill on the July 5th “holiday” rather than on the 4th this year.  We made turkey burgers and three salads.  I was inspired by two recipes in the food section in our paper on Thursday – one of the salads was Moroccan.  It reminded me that many Moroccan meals consist of a grilled or roasted meat and several side salads.  Another salad recipe was for a bean salad with the suggestion of serving it as bruschetta.  I thought this could work as just a salad or bruschetta as recommended.   My plan was to make the these two salads to go with the turkey burgers.  Then, my upstairs neighbors called and asked if I wanted part of a watermelon.  I said yes, and I was off and running to make a watermelon salad that my friend Karen had told me was a “must make” a while back.  So here is our July 5th cookout menu – Whole Foods Santa Fe turkey burgers, White Bean- Asparagus-Mushroom Salad, Moroccan Grilled Pepper Salad, and Watermelon-Cucumber Salad wtih Feta.  (Just click on the salad name to go to the recipe.)  I recommend iced tea with mint and lemon or a dry French rose with this meal.
