Summer Dinner Party

I made a few dishes the other night for some friends. The food turned out well and we all had a good meal.

Here's the menu for you:

Zucchini Patties- a Burwell family signature recipe (taken from some Mediterranean cookbook years ago).
Corn Slaw- a recipe, which I slightly modified by using broccoli slaw instead of regular cole slaw mix. The slaw was tossed with green onion, red bell pepper, 4 ears of corn cut off the cob, and 2 carrots, really finely chopped. The dressing on these was delicious-1/3 cup OJ concentrate thawed, 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar, and 1/3 cup canola oil, plus some salt and pepper.
Caprese Salad- stacks of tomatoes, mozzarella, shredded basil, and a drizzle of EVOO and balsamic vinegar
Some fresh and crusty wheat bread
Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies (from Cooking Light magazine) on top of vanilla frozen yogurt

Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics of everything before it was all eaten, but we got a few that captured the fun and some food.
