No-Cook Know-How: Five Quick Recipes to Keep You Cool in the Kitchen

Just chill. No really, it’s easy with no-cook recipes featuring fresh summer ingredients. Hearty salads, creamy soups and unexpected twists on classic flavors will leave you with more downtime when the temps are up. 

Niçoise Salad Wraps

Niçoise is a classic French salad that makes a hearty meal filled with protein from tuna and hard-boiled eggs. For a quick on-the-go lunch recipe, we’ve taken those flavors and wrapped them all up in a tortilla. Make a batch at the beginning of the week, and this will be a lunchbox favorite for days.

Corn and Avocado Salad 

With sweet corn, buttery avocado and a zingy dash of lime, this easy-to-whip-up salad has summer written all over it. Serve it alongside  grilled chicken or salmon with an extra lime wedge for squeezing.

Peaches and Melon with Prosciutto and Balsamic Glaze

Salty, ribbon-thin prosciutto is never better than when it’s wrapped around juicy, sweet cantaloupe. Balsamic glaze ups the fancy factor on this dish so it feels right at home at just about any occasion. Since the ingredients do all the work, this is a great side dish to keep in your busy-day bag of tricks.

Ricotta and Strawberry Baguette

If there’s one thing that tops a buttery baquette, it’s fresh strawberries and creamy ricotta – and we mean literally. These berry-topped baguette wedges make a colorful, not-too-sweet breakfast, appetizer, or dessert that’s ready in minutes.

Chilled Cucumber Soup with Yogurt

Can cucumbers really get any cooler? We say yes. Combine them with yogurt in a cool and creamy summer soup that pairs with crusty bread or a fresh summer salad. Having a party? Serve it in mini plastic shot glasses with a sprig of mint for a refreshing summer appetizer.
