10 No-cook Dinners for Summer

Summer Fruit Salad

That same summer heat that's keeping you out of the kitchen is helping Mother Nature shine in the garden. Take advantage of the plethora of produce available this time of year with an anything-goes fruit salad dinner. Be creative; use fruit from the garden, or take a trip to your local farmer's market and stock up on fragrant, juicy summer produce. If the heat has zapped you of your normal energy, pick up precut fruit from the store to get dinner on the table even faster. Give your meal an island twist with Emeril's Vanilla-scented Tropical Fruit Salad, or try this Rainbow Fruit Salad with Yogurt Sauce for a dish that's as colorful as it is delicious!
