appetizer and dessert ideas for a special dinner

andieb | Aug 11, 2010 07:18 AM

I'm hosting a birthday/anniversary dinner this Friday and need some ideas. For the main course I'm making Seared Scallops with Tomato Buerre Blance from Gourmet. I'm thinking as sides either basmati or orzo risotto and perhaps haricot verts. I'm stumped as to an app and dessert. The weather has been quite warm here in Boston this summer so I am looking for some light items, since the main will be fairly rich..Thanks in advance for any help you can provide-I seem to be stumped on this one! PS-there are no allergies or restrictions that need to be considered..
