Best 10 Cool And Easy Summer Dinners

So we rounded up 10 of our favorite summer recipes that require practically no cooking. From hearty summer salads to fresh spring rolls, these recipes are just the thing to keep you cool.
1. No-Cook Zucchini Noodles With Pesto

SUMMER FOOD: THE BEST TUNA SALAD RECIPE
Canned Tuna Ideas to Transform Your Summer Cooking
It’s the beginning of August in New York City. That means my ideal dinner is one that’s cold, light, and requires minimal cooking. I wouldn’t dare turn on my gas burners right now. In other words, I need canned tuna ideas. Stat.
We’re halfway through this sweltering season, and I’ve turned to cold tuna sandwiches for dinner more nights than I can count—and that’s not a complaint. I love jarred and canned tuna. It’s actually something I tend to crave during the height of summer. Why did you ask? Because it’s already cooked, delightfully salty, and flexible enough to tailor to my own taste.
HOW DO YOU MAKE TUNA SALAD HEALTHY?
To make tuna salad healthy (but still delicious) cut back on the mayo, or use plain yogurt in place of mayo. Then load up on fresh crunchy veggies and chopped herbs. Don’t skimp on the lemon juice, either!
WHAT ARE SOME TUNA SALAD IDEAS?
What goes in Tuna Salad, anyways? The short answer is almost anything you want. The longer answer is, well, there’s no wrong way to make tuna salad. High or low, this is a food that pleases almost anyone with the right tweaks.
- Tuna Salad with relish: Like me, a lot of people like a little sweetness and crunch with their tuna; sweet pickle relish most certainly pushes both of those buttons. Diced cornichons work, too!
- Tuna Salad with apples: A small amount of diced crunchy apple (I’m looking at you, Granny Smith!) is wonderful in tuna salad.
- Tuna Salad with celery: A classic tuna salad ingredient. The more celery you add, the more crunch you get.
- Tuna salad with pasta noodles: Adding some cooked pasta, like fregola, orzo, or farfalle to the tuna salad adds delightful texture and even extends the salad somewhat to serve more hungry people.
- Tuna Salad with peas: Fresh or frozen peas add color and texture to tuna salad, so go ahead and add a handful.
- Tuna Salad with egg: I love chopped hard-boiled egg added to tuna salad for a little extra protein on busy days.
- Tuna salad with capers: Salty, briny capers add another delicious dimension to tuna salad. Try a little spoonful mixed into the bowl and get ready for compliments.
- Tuna Salad without mayo: If you’re looking for a mayo-free tuna salad recipe, try making the dressing with plain yogurt or whipped silken tofu instead. I also make a super simple vinaigrette with a squeeze of lemon, a glug of olive oil, and a dollop of dijon mustard and it tastes great. Some chopped herbs (dill, parsley, from the garden seal the deal.
- Ahi Tuna Salad: Is the Ahi tuna looking fabulous at the fish market, or have you got an extra bit of tuna steak from last night’s dinner? Splurge and make tuna salad with it. Cook it through then flake it up in this recipe.
