QWith Spring approaching, I am already looking forward to summer entertaining. We like to have friends over for outside get-togethers and we also entertain on our boat quite frequently. I'm in a warm weather hors d'oeuvres rut. Could you please suggest some recipes that keep well in warm weather?
Your question has me dreaming of summer. Entertaining outdoors is wonderful -- I love that the crumbs and spills end up on the lawn instead of the carpet! Here are a few of our all-time favorite finger foods for summer entertaining. Try this Toasted Onion Cheese Log for a rich and savory appetizer. Pick up an assortment of your favorite nuts and spice them up with this addictive recipe for Deviled Nuts. Round out your hors d'oeuvres table with a refreshing fruit plate highlighted with Lime Cream Fruit Dip. Any of these can be made ahead, leaving you free to thoughtfully arrange your table or to relax on board while you wait to welcome your guests.
Hope you get out on your boat soon!
