Great Summer Party Recipes

Summer makes you feel lazy and not much in the mood to fire up the oven. Still, residents of University Square in Flagstaff, AZ still need something to serve when they have a few friends over. Try throwing together one of these great summer recipes designed with the idea of beating the desert heat!

BLT Sliders

Turn this classic sandwich into a fun party treat. Fry up a pan of your favorite bacon – turkey or pork, it doesn’t matter! Next, stack your sandwiches with your meat of choice along with lettuce and tomatoes on toasted white or wheat bread.

Slice them into fours and serve them up on a platter to your guests. Leave their favorite condiments off to the side so guests can finish them off how they wish!            

Easy Shrimp Tacos

Just pull together these ingredients for something tasty that guests can serve themselves.

Shrimp Taco Ingredients

  • Fresh or frozen shrimp
  • ½ cup freshly chopped onions
  • ½ cup sliced red bell peppers
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Ground black pepper
  • A pack of corn tortillas

Saute your onions and bell peppers in a pan with some olive oil. Toss the shrimp in a bowl along with your salt and ground pepper. Cook them in a separate pan until pink and fully cooked.

Spread some corn tortillas out on a baking sheet in an oven set on broil until warm. Place everything out for your guests along with sides like avocado or other fresh vegetables.

Melon Mix Fruit Salad

Serve your guest something cool for dessert by slicing up different melons like cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew into a large bowl. Add some grapes and strawberries for extra flavor.
