You can’t close out summer without going on a no-cook dinner spree. Here are five ways to not turn on the oven.

Veggie Lover’s Club Sandwich (above)
Nothing boring about this veggie sandwich. Choose from smoked tofu or smoked mozzarella for a boost of protein, and give the whole-wheat club an Italian accent with sun-dried tomatoes, arugula and chopped fresh oregano.

Rice and Bean Salad (from Food Network Magazine)
Here’s a great way to use up leftover rice (the recipe calls for 2 cups cold grains). The classic combo of rice and beans is tossed with fresh vegetables and herbs plus a dressing made with freshly squeezed OJ.

Gazpacho
It wouldn’t be a no-cook roundup without a shout-out to this classic chilled soup. Bread, tons of vegetables and good-quality olive oil make this a light meal that doesn’t leave anyone feeling deprived.

Salmon Lettuce Wraps
Get a dose of heart-healthy Omega-3 fats without turning up the heat. These lettuce wraps — layered with smoked salmon, vegetables and cream cheese — are high in protein and have a satisfying crunch quotient.

Tuna Salad
A nutritious yet simple dinner made from a pantry staple, this tuna salad enlists the classic celery and onion, plus a little fresh parsley and a joint mustard-mayo dressing. If you like, serve with crusty bread or whole-grain crackers.
