It’s the 4th of July tomorrow, an American holiday that provides celebrants with the perfect excuse to load up the car with a picnic basket and blanket and head for (hopefully) cooler temperatures in the great outdoors. Mountains? A lake? The ocean? A swimming pool? A nearby park?

Wherever you spend your July 4th, it’s best to remember that sometimes the “what” far outweighs the “where”, and of course when I say “what”, I’m obvi0usly talking about things like barbecue, deviled eggs, potato salad and cool and refreshing summer fruit.

And while this holiday is about as American as they come, it’s still possible to get the perfect foods for the 4th of July right here in Madrid. Ensaladilla rusa, chorizo, excellent grilled meats, tasty Spanish watermelon and more. You name it, Spain has got it, so what are you waiting for?

Happy 4th of July!
