    Anyone have any No Cook Meal Recipes that can be used for entertaining visitors, especially useful if the power goes out?

    Thanks,

    I like to make three bean salad! I don't have the recipe right on hand, but I'll post it later. It is very healthful, even kids like it!

    Tomato Cheese Salad - wedge tomatoes, slice mozza cheese and thinly sliced red onions. Arrange however appealing to the eye, drizzle olive oil and fresh diced garlic over top (or cheat and use the powder lol) and service chilled!

    Cheese & Fruit Platter - cube cheeses and slice up some fruits, if you want to be real handy make a quick dip.

    Veggie platter w/dip

    Preserved Olives and other pickled veggies from a jar - serve with crackers?

    No bake cookies? Ive done this a few times and they've turned out alright but I dont have recipie handy.

    Popcorn - as munchies, chips as well - serve in separate bowls w/diff seasonings

    Pinwheel sandwhiches - cut crusts off loaf bread, flatten with rolling pin or frying pan *lol* smooth on thin layer of peanut butter and then jelly, roll up into a lot and cut in 1/2 " pieces - lil pinwheels! Works same with tuna, egg salad and deli meats etc.

    Just off the top of my head

    Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

    1 lb cooked shrimp, peeled and tails removed (you can pre-cook and freeze it, thaw when you need it)
    2 avocados, peeled, seeded and diced
    1 cucumber, peeled and diced
    1/2 yellow or white onion, diced (omit if you don't like onion)
    3 cups tomato or vegetable juice
    few dashes Tapatio sauce (mexican hot sauce)
    a bit of crushed red chili if you like it hot
    lime wedges
    saltine crackers

    Mix everything together except the lime wedges and saltines in a bowl.
    Serve in a bowl with lime juice squeezed on top, and saltines on the side.

    Yummy! Almost like a gazpacho

    No Cook Bread:

    Soak 2 cups of whole wheat (certified organic preferably) overnight. Drain and rinse out twice a day for 3 days so they'll sprout. As soon as the tiny leaf sprout appears, process in manual grain mill (not flour mill!) or mash up in mortar & pestal (or process in food processor). Shape into round loaf and leave outdoors in hot sun for approximately 4 hours. Keep covered with cloth to keep off flies and pests. (Alternatively, cook at 120 degrees celcius with oven door slightly ajar for approximately 3 hours). Makes a really yummy bread! Note - it gets too 'chewy' if you allow the leaves to start sprouting.
