Roasted market vegetables and warm, bubbled-over fruit pies are essential summer fare. But in the sweltering heat of July, we do as much as we can to keep our kitchens cool. This month, you avoided the oven and took to the grill, charring everything from chicken to flank steak. You kept side dishes simple, using vibrant summer produce in juicy salads and cold noodles. And for dessert, you opted for any and all things frozen -- though the Flag Cake still held its place in your heart.
As you head into summer's peak, keep the following recipes nearby. They'll help you make the most of your market bounty while staying cool all month long.
