Summer Entertaining

I love this photo from What Gabby's looks beautiful, gives plenty of options and makes me want to jump right in.  If you want super easy summer entertaining , bruschetta is where it's at!  Throw this on a table for people to pick and choose their favorite brushetta combo.  If you feel like you need to round it out a bit more you could have some petite filet's for the bbq with a side summer salad.  Nice and light but still flavorful and fun.

P.S. I used to serve the spring pea pesto at hip hostess as a summer appetizer and everyone loves the fresh taste and bright color.

Bruschetta Bar
  • 1 large loaf of bread, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 recipe Basil Vinaigrette
  • 1 recipe Saffron Tomato Confit
  • 1 recipe Red Pepper Sauce
  • 1 recipe Spring Pea Pesto
  • 1 handful fresh arugula
  • 1 cup charred corn (you can take an extra shortcut and grab a bag of frozen charred corn at Trader Jpe's)
  • 1/2 cup caramelized onions
  • 1/2 cup sautéed mushrooms
  • assorted cheeses
  • assorted meats
  1. Heat a grill over medium high heat.
  2. Generously drizzle the bread with olive oil on both sides. Using a pair of tongs, transfer the slices of bread to the grill and grill for a few moments until grill marks are present. Flip and continue to grill the bread on the other side for a minute more. Remove and set aside.
  3. Remove the garlic from it's paper and carefully rub the garlic on the toasted bread to give it an extra layer of flavor.
  4. Arrange the toppings on a large platter or table and serve with the grilled bread.
