Although I saw that it snowed in Colorado recently, in the South, we’re still very much in summer, even though it’s September. I’m looking for quick and easy no cook recipes these days to keep me from sweating over the hot stove. If it’s cooler in the evenings where you are, then you could also eat them outside!

Another great thing about these recipes is they can mostly be prepped ahead of time and then pulled out when you’re ready to eat. This is perfect for a weekend day at the beach, or for a busy day of virtual learning!
