1. Gimlet

Shake up a classic tonight; then sit down to an easy and elegant summer dinner!

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!
