What can I add to this menu that won't make my dinner party unbearably hot?

I'm having a group over for dinner tomorrow night, and had a full summery-menu all planned out, but the weather's starting to get humid again in NY, and my menu involved some last-minute broiling--shrimp skewers. My kitchen is my dining room, and I don't want to make all my guests sweat. Here is what I will definitely serve:

Roasted zucchini marinated in olive oil, vinegar, mint, and anchovy
Prosciutto with broiled figs and almonds
Roasted beet salad with haloumi cheese
Pasta with tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella
Individual peach galettes with whipped cream

I can do all the roasting/baking ahead of time and serve the food at room temperature, so I'm not worried about the appetizers. One person is a seafood-eating vegetarian, but she doesn't care if she has to eat around meat. Is there any main dish I can make that I won't have to worry about keeping hot, that will go with my summery Mediterranean menu?

Thanks a lot!
