It's hard to be a cook, or to enjoy cooking, when it's this hot outside. (Do ice pops for dinner count as "eating seasonally"? Please?) For days when every fan is pointed directly at you and the last thing you want to be doing is making dinner, don't look too hard at the thermometer—is it 80°? 90°? Just pour yourself something tall and icy and make one of these 10 cold, (mostly) no-cook meals.
Is it in the 80s?
