Cool Summer Eats

Who wants to turn on the oven or stove when it’s hot out? While grilling is ideal for summer cooking, there are many ingredients that can come together without a single flame. Try pairing these no-cook summer staples with fresh vegetables and fruits for limitless delicious and cool options:

Rotisserie chicken can be added to salads, sandwiches, or rolled into rice paper wrappers with veggies for summer rolls.

Walnuts or almonds add protein and crunch to salads or an easy snack on the go.

Berries are low in sugar and calories, but high in sweetness and flavor. Enjoy in smoothies, with yogurt or simply eat them on their own.

Avocados can be spread on toast, diced and mixed into salads or mashed into guacamole with chopped tomatoes.

Chickpeas are protein rich and combined with olive oil and just about any diced vegetables makes a cool and colorful salad.

Watermelon is juicy and refreshing as the most - hydrating summer food eaten as a snack or cubed into summer salad.

Whether you are making sandwiches, salads, wraps, or bowls, you can’t go wrong keeping your meal cool.
