I need a light dessert for my mezes dinner

Pei | Mar 23, 2007 10:09 AM

Hey all,

It's been so long since I've hosted a dinner party, I'm having trouble with my menu! Let me know if any of these dishes can be spruced up with a few extra herbs or ingredients, and help me think of a light and delicious dessert. It's spring, it's warm in LA, and we want to celebrate!

-white beans in tomato/garlic/olive oil

-blanched, chilled asparagus marinated in lemon/olive oil dressing and wrapped in a slice of chuck

-steamed (or seared) snapper filets smothered in a puree of olives, sun dried tomatoes, and capers

-thyme marinated button mushrooms (slightly seared and chilled)

-grilled shrimp (lemon, garlic, and onion marinade)

-bread crumb coated seared scallops.

-bread with a few spreads (hummus, tabouli)
