Fourth of July is right around the corner and I am so pumped! Our city turns into Small Town USA every year complete with a full lineup of events for kids and adults alike.

Parade Kids

One event we never miss is the annual parade that happens to go right past our street. It’s the same parade I biked in as a kid so it’s always fun to see my boys watch it every year. I can’t wait until we can decorate their bikes one day so they can participate!

Pool Party

Afterwards, we usually head to my cousin’s house for a pool party with friends and family. It doesn’t get dark until super late here in Michigan this time of year so fireworks usually don’t start until 10:15PM. We are hoping this year our boys will be able to stay up for the occasion.

Vegan Potato Salad- The Lemon Bowl

The food is always kept simple and casual this time of year which is probably why I love it so much. Since my cousins always grilled brats and burgers, we always bring a side dish to pass. This year I’m bringing a tasty vegan twist on potato salad which is actually a riff off a family recipe.

Creamy Vegan Potato Salad- The Lemon Bowl

Instead of the standard mayonnaise and bacon, I toss the potatoes in a quick and easy hummus vinaigrette made with olive oil, lemon juice and fresh garlic. To brighten up the dish, I throw in fresh mint, parsley and scallions. It is out of this world and a nice healthy addition to the standard holiday menu.
