What are the biggest tips when it comes to summer entertaining?
Go Buffet Style
If outside, make sure to keep food in the shade, while if you’re indoors you should place food and drink in different places to avoid bottlenecking and create a nice flow.
Create a Cocktail/Mocktail Bar
Don’t forget to have plenty of non-alcoholic options on hand. Put all the cans and bottles in the cooler first, then add the ice on top.
Cold pasta and quinoa salads are easy and always crowd pleasers. Boil the pasta or quinoa the night before, add a protein and other favorite ingredients.
Add your favorite dressing and let it chill in the fridge overnight. Don’t forget to have an option for vegan and/or gluten-free guests.
If you’re grilling, marinate meats overnight for added flavor and tenderness.
Set Up Early
Do as much as you can the night before, so all you have to do that day is put out the food.
