Somewhere between the bountiful summer harvest and a need to beat the heat, David and I make it a point to NOT COOK as much as possible. Texas heat is no joke y'all, and we're not about to help Mother Nature heat up our kitchen anymore than she has to!
This week, we're sharing some of our favorite NO-COOK summer meals and treats. Oh, and y'all KNOW we like to sass it up with David's gourmet roasted salsas. Find these recipes and more on our new RECIPE page. Be sure to check back often, as I continue to add to our online library.
What are your go-to No-Cook summer recipes? Care to share? Let me know in the comment section below. Summer lasts forever in this neck of the woods, so I'm always looking for easy no-cook ways to enjoy the flavors of summer!

Sassy Summer Soups
Summer Saturday Morning is to Farmers Market as Farmers Market is to Watermelon in our community. One of our favorite ways to enjoy our farmers market finds is this family favorite, Tomato y Red Pepper Watermelon Gazpacho. #MouthWateringGoodnessY'all!!!
Speaking of family favorites, Tomatillo y Poblano Avocado Corn Soup is our baby granddaughter's favorite! She loves to dip her oyster crackers in it. What we love about it, in addition to the perfect creamy blend of our Tomatillo y Poblano salsa with avocado and sweet corn, is you can enjoy it warm, cold or at room temp. True confession: We do all three!
Sassy Summer Treats
The first time we were introduced to MPH Ice Cream was a couple of years ago after our friend Jim used our MPH Gourmet Roasted Salsa as the Secret Ingredient in his Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank-Off Contest Entry. One Grand Prize Later, a star was born! Here is the easiest breeziest no-crank-required version.
David's take on Canteloupe Mint Sorbet elevated with our MPH Gourmet Roasted Salsa is another summer refreshment our family and friends love and we hope you will too!
Speaking of friends, are y'all on Instagram? One of our go-to favorite IG foodie friends with a delicious presence is @TastingSanAntonio .
