Salad Days

It’s hot here. Like, seriously HOT. Summer and I don’t get along too well and this is precisely the reason.

The heat and humidity has me sweating during the walk from my apartment to my car (hint: it’s not that long). I am thirsty and groggy and cranky. General lethargy and a disdain for all things warm, and I’ve got only one solution: no-cook meals.
