cold pasta salad - cooked pasta (obviously!!) cooked veg or salad veg and mayo/salad cream.

Cold rice salad - boiled rice, any veg, fry some onion, add some pesto sauce, add rice and cool quickly (pan in bowl of cold water, stir) can add tuna (steak or from a can) ham, crispy bacon, cheese, any thing really!

My charges won't eat anything hot in this weather, so we stick to these sort of things and sandwiches!
