What are your favourite things to prepare when it's really too hot to turn on the oven?

Some of mine are:

- a nice spread with eggplant dip, pita, raw veggies
- cold rolls with peanut sauce
- fresh salsa and chips
- stuff that can be barbecued outside like veggie kebabs
- pasta salad (aside from cooking the pasta, it's all fresh)

What are your ideas?

I've been eating mostly fresh fruit recently. And smoothies. Raw corn salad. Anything raw is acceptable.

I really love gazpacho in the summer, but I'm too lazy to do that right now and Whole Foods is holding out on me.

Salads, salads, salads. Fruits and veggies. Minimal cooked foods.

One of my pregan favorite things was a cucumber, tomato and shredded cheese cold burrito. I've been longing for those days. So I've been doing stuff with cucumber, tomatoes and salt (cheese is salty).

I've never actually had gazpacho. Perhaps that should go on the list for next week.

Oh, frozen grapes for snacking. So good.

In addition to biorobitics' thread, there's this thread which also has some good ideas in it.

Dinner tonight is sushi. It's too damned hot to cook anything!

oh, goodness. It appears as if the heat has disabled my ability to search properly. Thanks for the ideas, folks!

I was lucky enough in my Target days to get my hands on a convection/toaster/microwave oven for $20 (started out at $200, but it was a display on clearance with my discount). So as long as it's not a huge item, I can still bake up to 400 and not greatly increase the heat in my house. But if it's just plain too hot to eat hot food, then I've been eating a lot of cereal or sorbet.

I made a batch of black bean burgers the other night when it was cool enough to stand at the stove for a little while. I'm the only one who eats them so there's a week's worth of lunches. I've also been just eating my leftovers cold. It turns out fried rice is pretty good straight from the fridge.
