Summer entertaining is meant to be casual and relaxed. People sometimes get stuck in a rut when it comes to summer cooking, opting to do the same burgers, hot dogs and potato salad because they’re easy and familiar. I absolutely love burgers and salad but sometimes it’s fun to try something new and different. This Italian menu is perfect for entertaining because you can do a lot of the work in advance and I guarantee it will be a crowd pleaser. Serve the main courses ‘family style’ on a buffet table to make things easy.
