Tips for making no-cook recipes delicious

1. It’s easy to whip up a no-cook meal if your pantry is well stocked with staples like canned salmon and tuna and legumes.

2. For maximum flavour and nutrition, make sure veggies used in no-cook meals are as fresh as can be.

3. These recipes are great for work – just ensure they stay chilled and keep any dressings separate.

4. Keep 'no-cook friendly ingredients' on hand in the fridge during summer for those 40°C+ days. Ingredients like bags of mixed salad leaves, kale slaw mixes, fresh herbs, and BBQ chicken.
