Easy living: 5 no-oven-needed dinners that are perfect for summer

Summer is all about an easy life, no?

No slaving over a hot oven, no faffing about with fancy preparation or ingredients. No, we want to be able to literally shut down our laptops, throw dinner together in no-time and then head out into the garden with a book and glass of rosé in hand.

Sounds like your kinda summer eve too?

Well, then we think you'll appreciate these yummy, quick and actually rather good-for-you dinner recipes we have rounded up too:

1. Gazpacho with Prosciutto Mozzarella Sandwich

Nothing is more perfect for a summer's day than super-delicious (and healthy) gazpacho – and a little bite on the side, like these yummy prosciutto sandwiches.

For the recipe, check out Marthastewart.com

2. Rad Rainbow Raw Pad Thai


Healthy, crunchy and colourful – we can't think of anything more perfect to serve on balmy summer nights than this raw pad thai.

4. Caprese Salad with Crispy Prosciutto


Caprese salad is pretty much the most perfect summer dish there is to begin with, but adding crispy Prosciutto just somehow takes it to a whole new leve.

5. Microwave Salmon En Papillote

OK; so we said no-oven-needed in the title, and technically that is still true because, with these, all you need is your microwave. And guess what? You'll probably never cook salmon any other way once you have tried this dish.
