Cooling recipes to keep you cool

With the summery temperatures, we are all looking for some refreshment. It's very convenient if your dishes can contribute to that. How about delicious cold wraps, tapas recipes, pasta salad or other cooling (lunch) dishes? We selected the best cooling recipes for some refreshment when you head out.

What to watch out for

It's important to think about what will make you feel cooler. Some fruits and vegetables can actually cool you down! Which ones, we hear you ask? Here is a list we made for you:

  • Water-rich vegetables and fruit, for example, kiwano, blueberries, strawberries and mango
  • You could add herbs with cooling properties, such as coriander and mint
  • Opt for lighter cooking methods, such as steaming and stir-frying
