Can't I say "She presented me to her friends" ?

As a native English speaker I would say that. It expresses a more formal sense of introducion.

That is a not a very idiomatic English expression. It sounds like you are directly translating from another language (many Swedish speakers say "presented" here in English and it sounds wrong).

I could see it in an ironic sense.
