No-Cook Recipes for Summer

Keeping things cool in the summer often means using your arsenal of no-cook recipes. No, that doesn’t just mean sandwiches and salads (though we love those too) — today’s no-cook recipes include soups, dips and even dessert.

No-cook recipes are a natural fit for vegetarians, but they’re also fantastic for anyone else looking to get some fresh flavor. When properly chilled, fruity soups make a great option for picnics. Or turn to our no-cook recipes for relaxed summer dinners that will keep everyone enjoying the day until the sun goes down.

An immersion blender is a great tool to have on hand for no-cook recipes, as it will make quick work of any gazpacho, salsa or sauce. Also, be sure to have plenty of refrigerator space for any recipe that needs to be chilled before serving.
