This light and fresh recipe is a wonderful upgrade to your classic chips and dip — an absolute staple at any picnic. It combines greek yogurt with sour cream and fresh dill.
Pressed Italian Picnic Sandwiches
These beautiful Italian sandwiches perfectly combine upscale quality with the convenience that is required by a picnic. We’re obsessed with the layers of fresh mozzarella, sliced salami, chicken breast, and sun dried tomatoes, all between slices of earthy focaccia bread.
Watermelon & Feta Salad
As the star fruit of the summer season, watermelon is an absolute must-have at any picnic. The combination of sweet watermelon with salty feta provides an unexpected burst of flavor.
Poppy Seed Potato Salad
This lighter version of the oh-so popular potato salad swaps out heavy mayonnaise in favor of dijon mustard, putting a truly unique twist on a favored classic.
Finger foods are the bread and butter of any picnic. An arrangement of mozzarella, salami, cheese tortellini, olives, and cherry tomatoes, this antipasto recipe packs a ton of flavor into tiny bite-sized pieces.
Dale’s Rainbow Planter’s Punch
After all of that delicious food, you’ll need something sweet and juicy to wash down the savory flavors. Mix fresh orange slices, pineapple juice, simple syrup, and a whole lot of rum to create a succulent punch recipe that tastes as good as it looks.
No-Bake S’mores Bars
Every picnic needs to end with something sweet. It doesn’t get much easier or yummier than these no-bake s’mores bars which only require fridge time to prepare these little drops of heaven.
