Best Served Cold • QUICK AND EASY WEEKNIGHT MEALS • Trust me, when temperatures rise, eating cold food for dinner is the move. Embracing the chill doesn’t have to mean muted flavors straight from the fridge or exclusively eating salads. It’s about making mealtime more flexible: no need to worry about serving dinner while it’s still hot (hello, anxiety-free hosting) or overheating in the kitchen just before sitting down. These four recipes lean on familiar techniques plus flavor-boosting pantry staples like pickled cherry peppers and fish sauce to keep the need for heat to a minimum. So when dinnertime rolls around, there’s no need to sweat it.
