The easiest way to do this is to take advantage of vibrant seasonal produce and make your food part of the tablescape. Here are several ideas you can try for your next summer party.
Corn is a summer staple, whether grilled, steamed, or broiled. When choosing corn, look for bright green husks and glossy silk. The tassels should be brown and sticky when touched. If the tassels are brown or black, this means the corn is old. Check for plumpness by feeling each ear through the husk. Try this grilled corn with honey butter from Picture Perfect Meals.
