We all love to cook, but there's nothing worse than spending time in a warm kitchen, preparing a hot meal that you can't even enjoy because the weather is too unbearable. As we find ourselves in the heat of summer, eating hot foods does not seem appetizing or enjoyable. Don't worry, though, as we have rounded up our favorite cold dishes that will keep you satisfied during the warmer months.
From salads to ceviches and even chilled noodle dishes, these recipes will make sure to keep you energized and, most importantly, keep you refreshed.
We dug deep, though, to find the perfect cold recipes that are not only quick and easy to make, but are sure to wow your friends and family.
