What to eat it's so HOT?

What do you do when it's so hot you can hardly breath.
One of my favorite things is to take a baguette slice it and then make a garlic mayo. I use store bought mayo about a cup add 5-6 cloves of crushed garlic and add 1-2 tab. fresh lemon juise, several Tab of fresh chopped parsley and the same of snipped chives. Toast the bread lightly spread with the mayo and top with cucumber and then with cherry tomato slices.Another good topping to go one the bread is one made from anchovy and pesto.
enjoy
kades

Watermelon! It's the most cooling food there is. Alone, or in a salad with chunks of feta cheese andwhatever else sounds good to you.

Cucumber/dill soup or Tsatsiki, or a cucumber salad. Cukes are also very refreshing food.

We do lots of salads in this type of heat. A mustardy vinaigrette, some canned tuna or salmon, mixed greens (making sure some are very peppery for interest), and whatever veggies... and some crusty bread makes a whole meal without heating up the house.

Gazpacho is my favorite hot weather food. Cheviche is a good one too.

This is a peasant sandwich from Turkey that dh loves when it's hot out. It's just a good French or Greek Sheep's milk Feta, sliced fresh scallions, and sliced fresh tomato (still warm from the garden if at all possible) in a ww pita.

Personally, I like ice cream, too. Without the fruit. Double

We have A/C, so I just cook the usual stuff, although never the "winter" type of meals such as meaty stews and casseroles.
