What is the perfect dinner to make when it is too hot? You finish up with a long day of work, and then it is time to make dinner. Most of the time, this isn’t so bad, but on a hot day? No one wants to end a long, summer day by standing in front of a hot stove or heating up the house with the oven. To help, here is a complete dinner that you can make when it is too hot—no heat required.
Wraps are basically fun sandwiches, or no-cook burritos, depending on how you look at them. They are easy to make, easy to eat, and work for both lunch and dinner. This turkey club wrap is a great choice because it is sure to please the entire family. And if anyone does want to eat a hot dinner, it can easily be put on an electric grill for quick heating that doesn’t warm up the whole house.
If you have never had authentic Mexican street corn, put it on your bucket list. However, this salad is a nice substitute, even if it isn’t the real thing. If your family isn’t a fan of traditional salads, this is the way to go. The flavors are great, it is healthy without being green, and it makes for the perfect side dish. If you wanted, you could even toss in some rotisserie chicken and make it a meal. Feel free to skip the spice if that is what works for your family.
Finally, no meal is truly complete without a little something sweet. This peanut butter fudge is quick, healthy, and requires no heat. It keeps very well, so you can make a batch to last you the entire week or to pop into lunches for work or camp. Don’t worry, no one will be able to taste the secret ingredient (chickpeas) that help make this fudge a guilt-free choice.
And there you have it: a great dinner you can make on those hot summer days.
