Are you pro or anti air conditioning? I'm anti, but there are those days that it's sweating all day long, drink icy things, just want to be lying in a puddle of water all day. If I can take time off, these are the best days of summer ever! If I have to work, I start to wish for air conditioning (just a little).
The last thing I want to do is spend all day making hot food in the kitchen. My go-to every time company stops by is to whip up a quick vegan snack board, which is the perfect way to eat a light summer dinner. Just stock up on veggies, fruit, bread, crackers, dips, and pickled things and it's just a matter of displaying it on a cutting board. Boom! Impressive hosting skills in the bag.
When I'm in the mood for more of a full meal, I still want as little effort as possible with as little cooking as possible, so today I'm sharing a collection of vegan cold summer meals that are perfect for these hot hot summer days. These recipes require very little to no cooking making sure you can be in and out of the kitchen in no time (but still get to feast on vegan deliciousness).
These vegan cold summer meals are collected from my blogging friends across the net, so simply click on the photo or title of the dish to take you to the full recipe.
