7 Oven-Free Meals to Beat Summer Heat


  1. Blackened Chicken Caesar Salad

Take your standard Caesar to the next level with smoky blackened chicken and crispy fried onions for a salad that eats like a meal – just don’t blame us if you find you can’t go back to the bland version served up by your local pizza place again!

2. Grilled Lamb Chops with Dill Basmati

Lamb and dill are a match made in foodie heaven, so who are we to break them up? With just a quick sear on the grill or in your trusty cast iron skillet, you’ll be halfway to dinner.


3. Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps

This handheld favorite is both savory and refreshing thanks to a cool slaw and sesame dipping sauce. Since you’re giving your oven the night off, might as well do the same with your forks!


4. Avocado and Tofu Sushi Bowl

Sushi without the sushi? Hear us out – this breezy vegetarian spin is packed full of Japanese-inspired flavors, and instead of having to turn it into a roll, you can enjoy it straight out of your favorite bowl.

5. Steak and Blue Cheese Salad

Delicious things are better together, which is why we’ve taken the classic wedge salad and steak duo and combined them into one dish. Caramelized onions add some unexpected sweetness, making this salad one you’ll want to play on repeat this summer.

6. Prosciutto, Goat Cheese and Asparagus Salad

The only thing possibly better than prosciutto is crispy prosciutto, and here we’ve combined it with summer-ripe corn, tomatoes, goat cheese and asparagus for a dish that feels both super-fresh and indulgent, all at once.

7. Summer Salmon Poke Bowl

Let us show you how we poke! The Hawaiian favorite has swept us off our boards, and it’s no wonder why. Our take on this beachside classic features ultra-fresh salmon tossed with crisp cucumbers and spicy chillies, all atop a bowl of warm rice and drizzled with citrusy ponzu dressing. Flip flops optional.
