Recently I had my daughter’s 3rd birthday party at our home. Since the party was from 3pm-5pm, I wanted to have a light lunch/early dinner menu for the parents. Below is what I served and felt it was an easy and surprisingly healthy menu to share for any gathering you may have this summer in your home.
- Grilled Chicken: marinated with lemon juice, fresh garlic and Italian seasoning.
- Grilled Vegetables: lightly coat vegetables with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Great vegetables to grill are eggplant, zucchini, asparagus, green and red peppers and red onions.
- Summer Orzo Salad
- String Beans with Fresh Mint
Serve with fresh Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
