  • Salad! That's what we eat a lot of during the summer. We don't have air conditioning in our kitchen so it's way too hot to turn the stove on a lot during the summer. If 'just a salad' isn't enough, add lots of chopped ham or chicken, cheese or something like that, and just make it a full meal.

  • before my sons tomato allergy we made stuffed tomatos on crazy hot days. open up and semi hollow out a big tomato and stuff with tuna salad. so adorable.

    even faster is a cold plate. Hardboiled eggs, cheese, meats, crackers, fruit, etc.... slice dice and serve type stuff

  • I love grilling in the summer. Grilled veggies and burgers, chicken, steak, all good and doesnt take long. the great thing is you can close the grill if i gets to hot.

  • Salads, sandwiches. Crackers, cheese, veggies and dip. Fruit salad or fruit and dip. You can also cut up summer sausage to eat with the cheese and crackers. Pasta salad, add chicken or ham cubes to it. Anything on the can even make pizza on the grill.
