When it comes to eating al fresco during the dog days of summer, you have to be careful — the dishes have to be refreshing enough to not weigh you down, served cold or at room temperature to offset the blazing heat, and casual enough to match the laid-back, barefoot vibe. So when we heard that the poolside bar at Travaasa Resort & Spa was open for the summer, we had to go check out what they were serving up. Continuing their mission of nutrition and wellness, the culinary team invited us over for a lesson in whipping up three simple dishes that require nothing more than a 20-minute break from the pool.
