It’s mid July in the Carolinas and it is sticky and hot. On a good day, I find cooking somewhat onerous. (My excuse? Decades of making meals for four kids and a very busy husband.) After a day of weathering 90 plus degrees combined with 90 plus humidity, making food is about as appealing as having a full Brazilian. And yet, I still get hungry, I still have friends over for lunch and dinner.

So, my beloved AAR-ers, help me out here. What are your favorite simple summer dishes?
