15 Easy No-Cook Side Dishes Perfect for Summer
Most of the time, when a friend invites you over for a barbecue and you ask what to bring, they will task you with a summer side dish — at least that’s what my friends do. While I usually don’t have the time or energy to fire up the oven or stove to make something (and let’s face it, most of the time it’s way too hot to turn on the oven anyway), a plain green salad just doesn’t feel festive enough for a potluck. My solution: no-cook summer side dishes.
You can leave your Instant Pot and slow cooker where they are, this line up of 15 no-cook sides includes salads and slaws that simply require a little chopping and tossing. They’re no-fuss and can be made ahead of time, but still feel special. I guarantee they’ll be a welcome addition to the party spread.
