2. Eggplant and Parsley Dip (Melintzanosalata)
Char eggplants for a smoky, spiced Grecian spread.
3. Chilled Cucumber Soup with Salt-Roasted Shrimp
This cooling summer soup can be prepped well in advance of guests’ arrival.
4. Grilled Corn with Chili Powder & Lime
Chili powder and fresh lime give corn a Mexican flare. Plus, it’s easy to toss on the grill alongside whatever else you’re cooking.
5. Grilled Salmon with Tomatoes & Basil
Fresh tomatoes add their sweet acidity to a rich salmon fillet for simple sophistication.
6. Apricot-Basil Ice Cream
Trim back your basil bush to freshen up a creamy treat. The first step here is to make apricot curd, so it’s really two desserts in one!
