I'm bookmarking this Spicy Quinoa, Cucumber and Tomato Salad from The New Your Times as one to try. It sounds delicious and healthy, and in this incredible heat, I've been trying to turn the stove on as little as possible. For example, last night's dinner was a Nicoise-esque salad with canned tuna, canned white beans and fresh lettuce and vegetables.
I picked up a recent issue of Real Simple because it promised "26 fresh, easy dishes," but when I opened it up I found more recipes for things like Roasted Pork Chop and Peaches than ones for the light, no-cook meals I envisioned. It find it hard enough to find affordable, healthy meat-free recipes (the staples of my weekday meals), when you add a desire not to use the stove, meal planning gets even harder. What about you? What do you cook when it's hot and humid out?
