Picnic Lunch Ideas and Fun Picnic Snacks that are Easy to Prepare
Lunch is more fun with fresh air. Go beyond potato salad with our picnic ideas for what to bring to the picnic table.
1) Summer Salad – Drain a can of black beans and one can of corn kernels. Now, mix them together in a bowl. Then add diced avocados and sliced grape tomatoes. If desired, add a few cubes of a hard cheese like feta or cotija and chopped cilantro. Dress with lime juice and a touch of oil and vinegar dressing.
2) Fruit Kebabs – Slice up some of your favorite fruits. Alternate sliced fruits with balled melon or grapes on wooden bamboo skewers. Lay them down flat in a long, rectangular food storage container for easy transport.
3.) Pesto Pasta – Add some “oomph” to your favorite pasta salad recipe. Instead of adding in mayonnaise, mix in pesto for a fuller, fresher flavor that truly celebrates summer.
