With July being National Picnic Month, it’s time to celebrate the great outdoors with good company and even better food (and drinks). Whether you’re a seasoned picnic pro or a first-timer, we’ve compiled a list of easy picnic recipes that will have your guests and your tastebuds thanking you! So, grab your picnic blanket, pack up the essentials, and get ready for a day filled with mouthwatering treats!
1. Pasta Salad
Pasta Salad is a sure crowd-pleaser! It can be served hot and cold but best of all, it’s extremely easy and quick to make! The recipe goes as follows; boil your pasta up for 8-10 minutes and coriander on it.
While the pasta is being cooked, prepare the salad dressing. Get all the spices and vegetables you like and start chopping. After the pasta has boiled enough, mix it with the salad and store it in a container box inside a fridge until the big picnic day.
2. Classic Deviled Eggs
It’s not a picnic if there are no deviled eggs! Hard-boiled eggs, a dollop of mayo, a hint of mustard, and a sprinkle of paprika – that’s all you need to create these creamy delights. They’re an egg-cellant and easy picnic recipe to make and your guests will be begging for more!
And don’t worry about any accidental spills on your clothes; Laundryheap’s got your back!
3. Fresh Fruit Skewers
Give your picnic a touch of sweetness with fresh fruits! Take your favourite fruits – strawberries, pineapple, watermelon, grapes, you name it – and thread them onto skewers for a vibrant, colourful and refreshing treat. Trust us, these fruit skewers are truly a thing of magic!
Let’s be honest, this easy picnic recipe list would be incomplete if we didn’t include the most popular picnic food there is; the sandwich. Versatile, delicious and satisfying, the list to describe sandwiches is endless! Whether it’s a chicken, cheese, Nutella or egg sandwich, sandwiches are a real picnic winner!
A tip to keep your sandwiches fresh and not soggy is to make them at the last possible moment. If you are making them a night before, remember to wrap them up properly in an airtight container, inside the fridge.
5. Iced Teas
If you’re looking to make a real impression, you can’t go wrong with iced teas! You’ll keep everyone cool and refreshed throughout the picnic! You can’t go wrong with the ever popular iced tea lemonade! Simply brew your favourite tea, add a generous squeeze of lemon juice, and sweeten to taste. Pour over ice and garnish with lemon slices or mint leaves for a touch of elegance. This thirst-quenching drink is sure to keep everyone hydrated and happy during your picnic adventure.
