What Do You Eat When the Weather Is Hot?


It's the end of July and things are starting to heat up across the nation. When the weather is hot, I simply cannot stand to turn on the oven. I prefer to do the cooking outdoors on the grill.

I crave filling dinner salads that are full of vegetables and cheese, like a classic Cobb or Greek salad. Grilled seafood — shrimp, sardines, and clams — is also satisfying.

Since hot weather calls for its own breed of cooking, I'm wondering: What are your go-to dishes? What do you make when the temps are in the triple digits? Cold soups? Grilled corn? Ceviche? Chicken salad? Share with us below!

I wanted to grill so bad this afternoon, it is just sooo hot at 104 in Fort Worth, TX, feeling like 112... Tonight I had cold pasta salad left over from lunch with chips and salsa. Very random combo I know. A lot of diet lemonade from Chick-fil-a and Greek yogurt with strawberries :) My fav

Definitely a big salad. Or even a burrito bowl. Premade rice and beans come together quite nicely with just a quick heat through.

Salads galore. Green, potato, coleslaw, tuna, and, my favorite, a cuke and radish salad with a yogurt-fresh dill dressing. Also, obscene amounts of chilled watermelon. And......gallons and gallons of iced tea with lemon to wash it all down.
