beat the heat

are you on the hunt for ways to stay cool during these summer heatwaves?!
too hot to cook dinner?
need something icy cold to cool your insides for dessert?

i stumbled across some ‘no-cook’ dinner recipes and these crazy kewl ‘popsicle art’ creations that seem super simple to concoct, require minimal work in the kitchen, make my mouth water just reading the ingredients, and the best part, no HEAT required!

fast, fresh and nutritious no-cook summer salads:

mango avocado shrimp salad

chicken and strawberries over mixed greens

turkey and blue cheese salad

white bean and roasted chicken salad

shrimp caesar salad

italian white bean and artichoke salad

lump crab salad

romaine and turkey salad with creamy avocado dressing

shrimp and white bean salad with creamy lemon-dill dressing

chopped barbecued chicken salad – def our dinner tonight!!

and now for the dessert
artful AND delicious popsicles:

chocolate-dipped

root beer float

white grape

banana split

pb & raspberry

mint chocolate chip

i can’t decide which one to make first… if you try one of these out, let me know what you think!
