Serving suggestions:

  • This recipe (and menu) is designed to serve 4–6 people. The reason for giving a range depends on if you choose to serve additional dishes than the menu given.
  • If serving the Casual Summer Dinner Party menu as is, I would plan for it to serve 4 people. However, if you have more then 4 people, each one of these recipes easily doubles, triples, etc.
