Well, we still need to eat….. but that doesn’t mean you need to slave in a hot kitchen to make sure your family gets a healthy meal. With a few simple ingredients and a bit of imagination you can make some simple healthy summer meals without even turning on the oven. Here are just a few meals I’ve discovered this summer that are easy and with a few tweaks my whole family will love. What are some of your favorite “no cooking required” summer meals?

10 Summer NO COOK Meals

White Bean Roasted Chicken Salad using a store bought rotisserie chicken

Chilled Cucumber Soup with Salami, Feta or cheese of your choice and Olives

Smashed White Bean and Avocado Club is a perfect Meatless Monday dinner

Tapas Plate with Marinated Chickpeas would be fun for entertaining friends

Turkey Salad with Tomatoes and Avocado – use craved turkey such as Applegate farms

Sesame Lime Chicken Salad using rotisserie chicken

Open Faced Tuna Sandwiches using Fennel which gives it a perfect fresh taste

Gazpacho with Goat Cheese would be another great entertaining recipe

Veggie Boats using Cucumbers and either Tuna or Chicken Salad

Avocado Wraps using of course Avocado, broccoli slaw, beans and greens

    These are great options. I had to pin, as I can bake and I can create meals – but I am a horrid “cook”.
