Yes, it's very tempting to eat out a lot more when the kitchen gets this hot. Sit in an air-conditioned dining room and have someone else cook? Yes please! But it's not good to eat out all the time, so what weeknight dinner for this time of year?
I love fresh, crunchy things, like these summer rolls:
Also, cool noodles are wonderful:
I also make lots of quick pasta dishes (grilled zucchini, a pound of pasta, Parmesan — done), and the grill is constantly in use.
What about you? What are your favorite fast, easy — and most importantly! — cool dishes for summer weeknights?
