Best of Summer Part V Easy Entertaining…

Everything about summer should be easy breezy, right?

Sometimes, I think we tend to avoid entertaining because, well frankly, it can be overwhelming.

In this installment of the Best of Summer series, I want to share with you a menu that comes together quickly with no fuss for truly easy summer entertaining.

Watermelon screams summer!  Right?

And when the heat index is soaring, our goal is to be ‘cool as a cucumber’!  Right?

With a few chops and a toss, you can put together this absolutely delicious refreshing salad of watermelon, cucumber, mint and feta cheese.  It’s really that simple.  So what to add to this cool, refreshing salad for a complete menu?  My answer…

Shrimp Tacos and Cuke Watermelon Salad

Shrimp Tacos…  These Shrimp Tacos and the accompanying cabbage slaw come together in the blink of an eye especially if you use a package of shredded cabbage!  A mixture of sour cream, cilantro and lime pulls double duty and serves as a dressing for the slaw and as a creamy cool topping for the tacos, add the spices to the shrimp and they’re ready for the grill.

You can skewer the shrimp but frankly I think that’s a bother – remember we are talking about easy entertaining here!  I use a grill basket or just put them directly on the grill…way easier than skewers. When the shrimp are done, throw the tortillas on the grill to warm and get a few grill marks and within a minute you and your guests are sitting down to enjoy this delicious and simple to pull together meal.  Bon Appetit!
