Summer Party Menu and Recipes

“Summertime, and the livin’ is easy” to quote George Gershwin. Here is a menu that is sure to please and everything can be made ahead of time, so that when it comes to summer entertaining, you can make it look easy. All of these recipes can be served at room temperature, buffet style, so you don’t need to do a lot of fussin’. Kick back, invite some friends and enjoy these seasonal dishes with some wine from Joseph Phelps Vineyards.


You certainly don’t have to prepare all of these recipes. Pick and choose what suits your tastes and what is in season locally in your area. For a nice dinner, you can pick one of the main entrees and two of the vegetables or salads and make it a meal.
