More About This Recipe
  • When you invited your friends over, fixing a summer meal sounded like a breeze.

    But now that the actual day has arrived, the air is hot and sticky. And that cool breeze? It’s been replaced by an uncomfortably warm one. Can you say nightmare?

    The last thing you want to do is cook. And canceling is out of the question. So, what do you do?

    As impossible as it may feel at first, hosting a dinner party on a hot day is totally doable. You just need to choose the right summer meal to help keep your cool.

    Start with a cool appetizer like Ceviche-Style Shrimp Cocktail or Gingered Fresh Fruit Salad.

    Plan a simple main course. Something like Grilled Italian Chicken Salad is perfect. But if it’s really, truly too hot even to grill, substitute rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Or something like Grilled Hamburger Steaks with Roasted Onions is a good choice too.

    Have your guests bring side dishes. Often times, people will offer to bring something. Say yes, and suggest they bring something to have with your main dish. If, for whatever reason, they don’t offer, go cool … crisp veggies and hummus. A salad with burgers. Or just some perfect sliced bread with salad.

    Finally, for dessert, take advantage of the season. Red, White and Blueberry Shortcakes would be a nice ending to a good summer meal with friends.
