The Fourth of July is one of those holidays when it is hard to resist playing up the theme in the food. It's why we make sure plenty of red, white and blue fruit tarts, flag-inspired cupcakes and brightly colored juices and cocktails always accompany our buffet of the usual hot dogs and burgers.

This year, we decided to carry the color scheme to our potato salad, too. And thanks to red and purple potatoes, roasted red peppers, cubes of white goat cheese, and several cups of blueberries, the American flag is well represented. This salad also would be delicious with the addition of chicken or crumbled bacon. Alternatively, if tarragon isn't your favorite herb, cilantro or basil would play nicely.
