An elegant Mediterranean meal for a midsummer night’s evening - Everything Anna
Sometimes we all crave a sophisticated gathering where we can pull out our best silver, snip bouquets of hydrangea for the table and quietly unwind with friends.

We put together a Mediterranean-style barbecue, one that still features the countless merits of the grill but keeps the atmosphere elegant. Tequila-spiked sangritas kick off the gathering, with grilled eggplant dip and slightly charred naan bread to follow. Kebabs skewered with lamb and cherry tomatoes are topped with a fresh dill and parsley salsa and then paired with a roasted potato and caramelized onion salad. The salad, which can be served warm or cold, skips the traditional mayo and, instead, is kissed with just a light vinaigrette. And rather than just ice cream, we present an iced tiramisu, perfect if your gathering moves outside to the porch after dinner.

And so you have an elegant meal for a midsummer night’s evening—one that is both refined and speaks of the season.
