I'm melting in this warm weather and haven't wanted to heat the house up further by cooking. What have you been eating that needs minimal cooking and preferably not using the oven ?

Sorry for putting an identical thread.

Thank you, pasta salads would work for us.

Slow cooker recipes? They don't cause a lot of heat.

Fish cooks quickly and can be served with salads such as potato salad or Russian salad, or quick to cook vegetables such as wilted spinach, fresh peas.
If you use a microwave, that will cut down on the heat in the kitchen too.

Type in nigella peanut noodle salad recipe it's so good and has great reviews.

During the summer I like to cook mostly seafood dishes. I don't know but I feel like they freshen the weather just by thinking that it's seafood.
My favorites are: Garlic Grilled Shrimps and
Smoked Oysters
Both these recipes taste great and don't require a lot of preparation or cooking time.
