BBQ/Potluck Recipes- Need Your Submissions

Here in the states, we had Independence Day on the 4th, which means we as Americans must stuff our patriotic faces. Post your recipes here and don't vote Republican. Post in the comment, and I will post it here if you wish, *please specify*). Or link to them, or whatever you want!
Hope you had a safe and happy 4th!

I have a couple. Maybe pictures will be added at a later time:

Chips and Fruit Salsa
Yes, this salsa is for chip-dipping! For a completely raw version, use raw flax crackers or even romaine lettuce. This is a free-style recipe. Everything to taste.

2 mangoes, peeled and fruit chopped small
3-4 large strawberries, hulled and chopped small
1/4- 1/3 medium red onion, diced very small
1-2 green onions, sliced thin (white and green parts)
1 bunch cilantro (or half, or none), chopped finely
agave nectar (raw agave for raw version)
1 japaleno pepper, deseeded and chopped fine (optional. I didn't use one because I didn't have any gloves!) This is only if you want a very spicy version.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and chill for a few minutes to allow flavours to blend. Serve with tortilla chips.

Yummy Potato Salad
I made the perfect potato salad yesterday. It will probably never happen exactly the same again. This is the best I can remember.

2-3 cups red (new) potatoes, unpeeled and small diced (about sugar cube-sized)
1-2 or a little less red onion, chopped fine
2-3 green onions, sliced thin or minced
1 handful cilantro, chopped (opt)
2 large "glops" Vegenaise, add more to taste or use less to taste
1 dollop regular yellow mustard
1 dollop stone-ground mustard (I like the kind with the seeds in it)
Fresh ground pepper
Kosher salt to taste

Cook potatoes until done but still firm. Drain well. Mix all ingredients well. Chill thoroughly. It is very important to chill. It is great room temperature but awesome chilled.
