We’ve all had those nights where we get home from a long, tiring day at work and the last thing we want to do is cook an entire meal. This is especially the case during the summer, when you have more to do and don’t want to make your house even warmer than it already is. The solution: no cook dinners! These are some of our favorite no cook healthy summer dinner ideas:
1. Roast Beef Salad
Almost any salad dish you can whip up is a perfect no cook recipe to make for a summer dinner. For this dish, combine lettuce, roast beef, tomato, onion, and goat cheese in individual salad bowls. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper for the dressing. Finish it off by drizzling this over your salad as desired.
2. White Bean Avocado Club
It doesn’t get much healthier than this delicious choice of a sandwich. Combine beans, oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mash the mixture with the back of a fork. Spread this mixture on all necessary bread slices, and top it with onion, cucumber, sprouts, and avocado. Put the slices together and you have healthy, tasty sandwiches ready in minutes.
3. Turkey Cheddar Roll-Ups
These roll-ups are an easy, delicious meal that can be whipped up in minutes. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and horseradish, which will serve as the spread for your tortillas. Once the spread is applied, layer the tortilla with lettuce, roast beef, and cheddar. Roll up your wraps and you’re ready to eat!
4. Crab Rolls
For this recipe, you’ll need crab, mayonnaise, radishes, celery, celery leaves, apple, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Once you have the ingredients, grab a mixing bowl and begin to combine all of them together, mixing evenly. Once mixed, simply grab some hotdog buns and fill each one with the crab mixture.
5. Minty Chickpea Salad
This salad recipe is another very simple combination that will keep you from being stuck in the kitchen all night. Place couscous in a bowl and pour hot tap water over top, cover, and let it sit to fluff up. Stir in chickpeas, oil, salt, and pepper, and spoon some onto each plate. Then, combine some tomatoes, onion, mint, salt, pepper, and oil in a separate bowl, and add that to your plate to complete the salad dish.
6. Dill Chicken Souvlaki
In a bowl, combine oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Fold in rotisserie chicken, cucumbers, onion, and dill into this simple dinner combination. Grab your favorite flatbread, spoon as much of the chicken mixture into them as you’d like, and serve it with Greek-style yogurt.

As a mother, Jennifer understands the importance of offering nothing by the best for baby. Motivated by teeth marks on her children’s cribs, she decided to design a teething rail cover after trying products that didn’t measure up when it came to quality or style. What she found out made her even more concerned about children’s safety and health: The toxic chemicals used in the production of synthetic materials have been linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders, and weakened immune systems.
She asked herself, “What if I could revolutionize the way parents decorated their crib with a safe and stylish teething rail cover that could be placed on the crib from day one?” Babee Talk® launched in 2014 with organic bedding and accessories. Chew-friendly, drool-friendly, and organic inside and out, her products ensure a healthy start in life for babies.
She only offers products that she would provide for her own children. She hopes moms and dads will start to talk about the importance of choosing safe, healthy, eco-friendly products, especially for babies.
