For appetizer, you can try making a Raw Food Olive Tapenade. Made from black olives, green olives, garlic, oil, lemon juice, and black pepper, this interesting recipe serves as a great dip for your favorite tortilla chips and potato wafers.

 

Salmon Salad Sandwiches 

Salmon Salad Sandwiches

Just spread on toasted bread or sandwich between split croissant layers and serve as the main course at your summer dinner party. A healthier option would be a sandwich made from two whole-wheat buns. If you want to spice up, add few drizzles of hot pepper sauce.

Made with beets and apples, this sweet salad is a delicious no cook recipe in your simple dinner party menu. Rich with the flavorful yoghurt dressing, this makes a great side dish.

Light Summer Dinner Party Menu

 

Guacamole In Cherry Tomatoes 

Guacamole In Cherry Tomatoes

This simple summertime appetizer recipe is personal favorite - fresh, and seasonal stuffed cherry tomatoes. Prepare some guacamole out of avocado, green onion, bacon bits, and Worcestershire, and then stuff this in the bright red colored tomatoes. Serve them as appetizers along with a glass of sparkling wine.

 

Gazpacho

Include this cold soup as one of your recipes in your summer dinner party menu.  It is a great way to beat the heat, and you can make it in advance. It only gets more flavorful as it sits!

 

Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Marinating the chicken in buttermilk makes the meat moist and flavorful. Seasoned with salt and pepper, this deep-fried delicacy is perfect as the main course in the menu for your summer dinner party.

 

Coleslaw

Coleslaw is a wonderful choice to keep your party menu simple. Add a few toasted almonds to the coleslaw just before serving for crunchiness.

 

Desserts

Finally yet importantly, do not forget the desserts! A sundae bar is incredibly fun for summer parties. Just line everything up then let your guests play! A strawberry cheesecake, vanilla ice cream, oatmeal cookies, Tiramisu, caramel flan, and the list goes on and on…

 

Planning a summer dinner party menu is quite easy. An array of simple, yet tasty dishes – that is what is required for a great dinner… Try it yourself to see the difference…
