summer classics

August 8, 2010

The dog days of summer are certainly here in Minneapolis. Steamy, humid, shorter days that have that hazy feeling to them. My apartment is a complete sauna 24/7 after soaking up the heat for three months and my desire to cook is at an all-time low. Just for you guys though, I’m going to brave the kitchen once I hit publish…

Juan feels it too:

Jamal must be hiding under the sofa.

I’m relying on cool, easy ideas to get me through these steamy days and I thought you might appreciate some of them too!

Here are some of my highlights from this summer. They are all either no-cook or minimum heat required recipes. Enjoy!

> smashed peas with mint bruschetta:

> edamame and chickpea salad:

> watermelon and feta salad with mint:

> lemon grain salad with asparagus, almonds and goat cheese:

> gordon ramsey’s gazpacho:

> moroccan chickpea couscous salad:

Which one of these do you think would be your favourite?
As of this second, pea and mint bruschetta sounds was SO dang good.

What are your favourite things to eat when it’s blazing hot outside?
Not going to lie, today is definitely an ice cream day…
