We're going to the opera next Friday night and I need some chowhoundish menu suggestions. Since it is a Friday night, I'll be pressed for time so whatever I make needs to be either quick or done the night before. Something tasty, that will start the evening off right (re: impress my date), goes with white wine and is tummy friendly (no belching during the arias). I've worn out the likes of pate, cheese, fruit, and a cold seafood platter. I'm thinking maybe a hearty salad (but what?) or a fresh, healthy sandwich (grilled veggies?) or a room temperature, make-ahead pasta dish. Any suggestions?
