• Turn to your crock-pot. Is it cooking? Kind of. But it's not you doing the cooking.
• Savor a summer salad. On hot days, fresh, crisp ingredients are way more refreshing that a steaming casserole.
• Whip up a dip. "Puree some white beans with herbs and olive oil...then you can use raw vegetables, crackers, whatever," suggests Shine reader K.
• Dinner of champions. The favorite no-cook dinner of our Community Manager, Brenda: a bowl of cereal. "And I don't even sit at the table to eat it!"
• For the perfect snack, remember two words: Frozen grapes, says Nicole Gulotta.

When it comes to weeknight cooking, Summer days are both bad and good things. On the one hand, with longer, warmer days, it's easier to be out and about than behind the stove in a kitchen. On the other hand, balmier evenings call for fast, superlight, no-cook meals that come together in a heartbeat. Keep reading to see five of our favorites right now.
- Vegetarian Taco Salad: No stove is required to brown beef in this meatless taco salad. Rather, it's chock-full of different textures and flavors, from crunchy jicama to salty queso fresco.
- Roast Beef Sandwiches: These aren't just any roast beef sandwiches: we love the tangy combination of chive spread, ripe tomatoes, beef, and sourdough bread.
