Creating the Perfect Picnic

As summer approaches, so does hanging out at the beach, laying on the grass and going to the park with your family for long picnic lunches. It is so much fun just to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, food and a lovely time together.

I love spending the time chilling out while the kids play and have a ball as well.

When you think picnic, you may not think of healthy food options. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are so many great recipes that are perfect for picnics while keeping it delicious and healthy.

The main thing when you are heading out for a picnic is that the food is portable and of course tasty!

Here are some of my recipes that are perfect for a picnic.

PEANUT BUTTER BLISS BALLS

These little morels are really easy to make and very transportable. Plus they will please all the sweet tooth’s that are picnicking. These could be added into a fruit & nut platter, that would be gorgeous and delicious.

BLINIS TOPPED WITH HOT SMOKED SALMON

Instead of packing cheese and crackers that are brought from the supermarket, these delicious blinis are an amazing alternative. You can put any savory toppings that you like on these. Some great ideas are smoked salmon, vegetable dips, hummus, ham or salami or avocado salsa.

STICKY ORANGE, CRANBERRY & TURKEY MEATBALLS

These meatballs are packed full of flavour and will be gone in no time at your picnic! You should double the batch because I am telling you that they will not last.

PULLED PORK TACOS

Need I say anymore! This pulled pork is so easy to make in the slow cooker and can be served in tacos. Perfect for a picnic! Take along containers of tomato salsa, avocado, lettuce and lime for everyone to make their own tacos.

CRUNCHY ASIAN SALAD WITH PEANUT SAUCE

These little jars of yum and so easy to make, so cute and perfect for occasions like picnics. It doesn’t take long to prepare these and they can be packed into single serving jars, setting the ton for the picnic.

I hope that these ideas jazz up your next picnic adventure! If you make any of my recipes don’t forget to find me on the social channels under @caralee.fontenele and tag me in your recipes. I love to see what you are making!
