Italian Dinner Menu without Citrus

maplesugar | Jun 28, 2010 12:38 PM

We`re hosting a dinner for 30+ the weekend after the 4th, and one guest can`t eat citrus, which includes tomatoes. I don`t want her to have to worry about being a bother because it`s not an inconvenience it`s just not how I`m used to cooking - but I love a challenge, it helps me push my boundaries and get more creative in the kitchen. Please help me plan a citrus free menu. When I think Italian a lot is tomato based.... caprese skewers, bruschetta...especially this time of year when my patio tomatoes are beginning to bear fruit.

I need ideas for well... everything. Apps, mains, sides, desserts... Bonus points for items that can be made ahead, or served at room temp. I`m thinking of doing cannoli for dessert, but that`s it so far.

Thanks all!!!
