A post shared by Ina Garten (@inagarten) on

Leave it to Ina Garten to keep her cool when everyone is practically melting—she’s shared another tip for summertime cooking, and it’s straight from her yet-to-be-released cookbook, Cook Like a Pro.

Luckily, her sage advice is also totally simple to pull off. When the temperature soars, Ina relies on fresh, in-season vegetables to turn a simple grilled protein into a fabulous meal. Here’s what she says:

“When the weather in East Hampton gets really hot, I don’t feel like spending a lot of time in a hot kitchen. Instead, I’ll grill some fish or chicken and make a big salad from ingredients I can find at almost any farm stand. My new favorite is the Tomato & Avocado Salad from my new book ‘Cook Like a Pro’ that comes out this October, and I’ve been making it so much this summer I just had to share it with you early! It’s tomatoes, avocados, red onion, with arugula and a fresh lemon vinaigrette. Hope you love it as much as I do!”

Hang on…Ina just gave us the sneakiest sneak peek ever, didn’t she? We know what’s for dinner tonight. (Thanks, Ina.)
