This no-cook menu delivers plenty of fun and flavor without all that business about slaving over a hot stove.
Gazpacho: Summer vegetables take a spin in your blender for this icy-cold Mediterranean soup. (Note: Substitute 1 tablespoon fresh herbs for 1 teaspoon dried.)
Avocado-Shrimp Salad: Shrimp, avocado, tomato, and sweet onions chill out for a fuss-free seafood salad. (Note: Spice things up with a dash or two of hot pepper sauce and minced cilantro.)
Chocolate Wafer Ice Cream Sandwiches: It's too hot to chase after the ice cream truck so make your own frozen treats instead. (Notes: To change things up, roll cookies in cake sprinkles or crushed candies.)
Frozen Lime Daiquiri: Freezy, slushy, lime-drenched refreshment. Watch out for the rum. You've been warned.
