They say that when you can't take the heat, you should get out of the kitchen. We call that suggestion a little bit over the top. With the August weather upon us, if you're sick of sweating it out but short on funds, don't go hungry — just shut the stove off.
We’ve provided four recipes for low- or no-cook dishes in this section. There’s a great Champagne gazpacho from the Magnetic Field that begs for a bottle of vinho verde and some candle-lit time on the patio. We’ve also given you a quick-and-easy rotisserie chicken salad that works perfectly spooned over salad greens or into pita pockets. Serve your chicken pitas with some of Tupelo Honey’s cole slaw on the side.
And are you sick of ceviche? Try our tuna poke recipe on for size.
