Recipes for a Casual Dinner Party

Not all dinner parties have to be swanky affairs with place cards and dessert forks.

You can organize a "come as you are" dinner party perfect for summer evenings, featuring quick and easy dishes plus casual footwear suitable for such a soiree.

Susan Spungen, contributing food and entertaining editor for Weekend magazine, recommends the following recipe.

This dip is different from the standard ranch dip usually seen with a crudites platter and more like a creamy bleu cheese dip. You can even switch the gorgonzola for the bleu cheese you like. Buy precut veggies at the supermarket, and make the dip on the morning of the party and refrigerate it until it's time to serve.


  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp white-wine vinegar
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 6 oz. Gorgonzola, crumbled
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking Directions

    Whisk together buttermilk, mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar and scallions. Stir in the gorgonzola and season with salt and pepper. Serve with raw vegetables. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
