No-Cook Summer Meals

Who wants to turn on the oven or crank up the stove when it's 100 degrees outside? Even the thought of grilling, a summer cooking staple, can induce heat flashes over a certain temperature.

Instead, think about some meals that don't require any heat at all.

* Caprese salad - tomato, mozzarella cheese, olive oil and some basil. Super easy and so tasty!

* Wraps - some deli meat, sliced cheese and some fresh fixin's. Serve with macaroni salad, potato salad or chips.

* Fresh green salad with chicken - use a warm rotisserie chicken already cooked at the grocery store so you don't have to heat anything up yourself.

* Chicken salad or tuna salad sandwiches - again, get your ingredients already fixed from the store to keep from cooking.

* Hummus and pita bread - think appetizers and you'll have a light meal as well as a no-heat meal.

* Shrimp cocktail - pre-cooked shrimp can simply be thawed and eaten, combined with a really great cocktail sauce.

* Sushi - 'nuff said!

* Dessert - cookies baked on the dashboard of your car ... or ... ice cream and lots of toppings, frozen fruit bars, fresh fruit, pudding.
