Help Me Plan a Seasonal Father's Day Menu!

Good Questions

Q: I am wondering if you could help with the menu for a Father's Day lunch I am planning for my Dad and Poppy.

We will be making a pasta entree with mint pesto, but we're not sure what to serve as a side that rounds out the meal. Dessert will be Martha Stewart's amazing rhubarb upside-down cake. I'm hoping for a seasonal, special, but not too fancy meal!

Editor: Gillian mmmm — that rhubarb cake looks amazing. As far as a side dish goes, you could do simple grilled chicken — or, if you're keeping it vegetarian, what about this pretty squash ribbon salad?

Readers, what would you suggest?
