Summer Dinner Round Up

It is just so hot and the end-of-summer motivation is a bit lacking, am I right? Here are my dinner ideas when it it is too hot to cook or when you just need to shake it up without too much effort. .

Sandwiches definitely should be on your radar for a no-cook dinner. Pulled pesto chicken caprese sandwiches use rotisserie chicken, fresh mozzarella & tomato. Add some caesar on the side for a quick, cool meal. Or go for a loaded veggie & hummus sandwich.

Tuna and White Bean Salad gives you definite dinner-vibes. The tuna and beans provide a serious protein punch.

Apps for dinner is a great option – for lots of reasons. A charcuterie board (tips: here) and some deviled eggs (like these Italian deviled egg ones) and lemon fruit dip. This definitely takes more ingredients & work, but so fun.

To not cook, think fancy brunch: unusual toast like peach & pistachio toast and a smoothie (maybe this mojito smoothie or chocolate almond smoothie).

Five: Some cheaters with some cooking
Some quick pastas which would mean you would need to boil the pasta BUT this zucchini and ricotta pasta has a no-cook sauce that is great warm or cool!
