The summer heat is really beating down on all of us right about now, which means our desire to turn on our ovens and stovetops is at an all-time low. We’re always on the hunt for a good no-cook recipe, and the first thing that comes to mind when we hear “no heat” is, of course, salad. Sure, it might sound boring, but we’re big fans of a nice, cool, satisfying salad, especially when it’s one that’s a little bit different but no less delicious. Our current favorite? This Mediterranean Cucumber Salad! The simple combination of vegetables and the perfectly light coating of olive oil and juices is just divine, and exactly what we want on nights when it’s too hot to even think about food. Watch how easily it comes together, and make some to enjoy by the pool.
