Whether your idea of the perfect summer is finding adventure outdoors, gathering with family and friends, or lounging solo with a cold beverage and a book, spending hours in the kitchen is probably not high on your agenda.

The cooked components can be made in advance, which lets you keep your oven off and simply assemble the ingredients at mealtime.
