Too Hot To Cook? Try These Cold & Delicious No-Heat Recipes

It’s a scorcher! If you’re anything like us, the last thing you want to do on a hot summer day is stand over a scalding hot stove. Instead, cook cold and store your dishes in the fridge! If you feel like a big feast, don’t worry – cold doesn’t mean salads only! There are plenty of no-bake, no-heat recipes for a perfect, filling meal. Try peanut noodles or italian pasta salad, and finish it off with a sweet slice of chocolate-mint icebox cake.

Before you load up your refrigerator and freezer, make sure they’re properly maintained. A dirty or broken fridge or freezer can transmit foul smells directly into your food and accelerate rotting and mold growth! Check your fridge twice a year to ensure your food remains fresh and safe to eat. For step-by-step instructions, read: Maintain Your Fridge and Freezer.
