Keep cool during the summer months with these 20+ Delicious Oven-Free recipes that don’t require an oven. It’s already too hot outside, so let’s not heat up the house too!

Oven-Free Recipes


How are you handling the heat? I hope you’re either staying inside with that beautiful A/C running or outside by the pool so you can take a cool dip. Here in sunny St. George, Utah we have been hitting triple digits very consistently. This crazy heat has inspired me to put this list together of 20+ Delicious Oven-Free Recipes that don’t require you to turn your oven on. The amount of flavor in these dishes is endless!


This list of 20+ Delicious Oven-Free Recipes is filled with salads, sandwiches and wraps that will keep your tummy satisfied and that oven kept off! These recipes are typically easier than those that require baking of any sort. Some of my personal favorites are my Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches and Turkey Ranch Club Wraps.


Another fantastic thing about these recipes is that they incorporate fabulous summertime flavors from Strawberry Chicken Wraps, Summer Corn Salad and Doritos Chicken Taco Salad. Here in the Lofthouse, Doritos chips are one of our favorite poolside snacks. I wanted to incorporate it into a fun and flavorful salad, and I am happy to report that each member of my family loves it. You and your kids will too!

Try to stay cool out there, friends and enjoy these yummy recipes!
