Here we go with three of our favorite no-cook, cool-off, in-a-hurry crowd-pleasers. Please share with your friends and let us know your favorites!
1) Martha Rose Shulman deep-dives into one amazing theme every week on her “Recipes for Health.” Last week: frozen fruity treats like melon sorbet. This week: “Cool-as-a-Cucumber Salads.”
2) Jamie Oliver’s recipe for Lemon, Lime & Peppermint Sorbet from our friends at Foodily. Especially appreciate these breezy instructions in torrid conditions:
Place the sugar and water in a pan, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a while. Zest and squeeze your limes and lemons and chop your peppermint. Mix everything together in a plastic or earthenware container and place in the freezer.
Generally a sorbet takes 2 hours to set. Try to stir it around every 30 minutes if you remember.
(PG note: mint is not on the EWG list, but we think it possibly should be. Our mantra: if it’s a leaf, eat organic.)
3) When we cannot begin to think of what to make for dinner, we check EatingWell. Their daily Dinner Tonight feature is always a life-saver. Today: Summer Vegetable Crepes. (PG hint: we bet these would also work splendidly as wraps — and we can’t wait to experiment with all sets of veggies we got at the farmer’s market last weekend!)
