4 Easy Dinners for Hot Summer Nights

When it’s this hot outside, the last thing we’re doing is turning on the oven. Thankfully, these four super-easy, healthy summer meals require no oven time (throw the buckwheat stuffed peppers on the grill instead of in the oven) and very little stovetop action, either. Light and delicious—they’re exactly what we’re craving right now.

  • Ceviche


    This kind of tastes like guacamole with a little fresh halibut thrown in, which is probably why we could eat the entire bowl in one sitting. Be sure to cut the fish up small so the lime juice “cooks” it quickly.


  • Ginger & Cilantro Shrimp Salad in Avocado Halves

    We flavor this shrimp salad with fresh ginger, cilantro, and lime juice and serve it in an avocado shell for a fun and healthy twist on the classic.


  • Buckwheat Stuffed Peppers with Tahini Dressing

    Still to this day, it blows our mind how char-grilling peppers with nothing more than olive oil, salt, and pepper intensifies the flavor and aroma. This flavor bomb is the result of the heat drawing out natural sugars—these sugars then caramelize on the skin, resulting in color, char, and an intense flavor.


  • Summer Panzanella

    Make this, grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, and call it a day. Be sure to use stale baguette for texture, or toss torn fresh baguette in a hot pan, oven or toaster oven to crisp it up a bit (we know, we know, it’s breaking the no-cook cooking rules, but the slight crunch is essential).
