Menu Advice Please

Indy 67 | May 25, 2010 08:54 AM

Some friends will be over for dinner Saturday night and I'm obsessing on the appetizer, sides/salad, and dessert. The only part of my menu that has been settled is the main dish, Pasta a la Greque. That an old stand-by of mine. A mixture of cooked shrimp, diced tomatoes, feta cheese, and sauteed onions is prepared in advance, chilled, and, then, allowed to come to room temperature. This mixture is served over freshly cooked hot pasta.

When you're making suggestions, you do not have to deal with dietary restrictions. The most important criterion is ease of preparation. In fact, I'm even open to assembling food rather than preparing it (e.g. a salumi platter as a starter).

Thanks in advance!
