I don’t know about you guys but I hate cooking when it’s 90+ degrees.  And I realize that if I lived in Texas, I’d have serious issues but let’s face it, somebody has to get dinner on the table.  So when it’s hotter than heck outside, it might as well be an easy meal even if the A/C is blasting all summer long (like in our wussie house)  Here a few of our favorites:

  1. Watermelon Feta Mixed Greens Salad
  2. Greek Grilled Chicken
  3. Tabbouleh
  4. Grilled Spice-Rubbed Shrimp Nicoise Salad
  5. Chipotle & Honey Glazed Grilled Chicken
  6. Apple Pecan Chicken Salad
  7. Greek Panzanella
  8. Bruschetta with Sweet Red Peppers and Gorgonzola
  9. Spicy Bean Burritos
we love to see what you make!

    Thanks so much for these “cool” dinner ideas; I live in Texas and it is HOT…a couple of days ago we hit 109! That’s too hot; will be looking for October to come real soon….maybe by then we’ll cool down to the mid 90’s (LOL).

    Thanks for these. Today we are starting another heatwave in NYC and I hate the heat. The spicy burrito is the first one I want to try. Oh my.

    Wow, what a list. It looks like the only thing you might be missing is hummus!! 🙂

    And I’ve been meaning to make Tabbouleh for a while. Thanks for the reminder.
