Sesame Noodle Salad with Smashed Cucumbers

These noodles will serve you well when the weather is sweltering and you just want something cool to eat. Robust buckwheat noodles are coated in a nutty sauce made with tahini and sesame oil and topped with crunchy cucumbers with a hint of heat from sambal oelek. You'll find sambal oelek with the Asian foods in most supermarkets; if you can't find it, you can substitute chile-garlic paste or Sriracha. This makes a good-size batch with enough leftovers for a few easy, no-reheat lunches.

Ginger-Tahini Oven-Baked Salmon & Vegetables

The tahini sauce does double duty in this healthy salmon recipe, serving as a glaze for the fish and also as a drizzle for the entire dish at the end of cooking. The green beans are cooked just slightly in this recipe, to still be crisp. If you like your green beans tenderer, look for thinner beans or haricot verts in the grocery store; they'll cook more quickly. This sheet-pan dinner recipe is not only delicious--it also comes together with just 25 minutes of active prep time, and there's only one pan to clean up afterwards!
