Call it the ultimate lazy-girl 'tude, but when it's hot out, the last thing we want to do is be in the kitchen — let alone turn on the oven. Still, throwing kale in a bowl and calling it a day does not a satisfying lunch make.
Unfortunately, heading out to a well-air-conditioned restaurant every time your stomach growls might not be the best solution for you or your wallet. So instead, we've culled nine of R29's favorite recipes — we're talking everything from ceviche tacos to a watermelon salad that's perfect for snacking — for those summer days when you just can't bear to actually cook.
