It’s summer here in Puyallup, WA! Take advantage of the warmer weather and (hopefully) clearer skies and celebrate summer by getting out of your apartment and throwing a picnic. The Canyon Park Blog is here to help you celebrate with recipe suggestions for your next picnic.
For an appetizer:
The main thing to keep in mind when you’re putting a picnic together is to make sure you’re packing picnic-basket friendly food. Bean dip can be difficult to transport from place to place — it’s messy, it gets everywhere, and it often needs to be carried in a heavy glass or metal dish. Problem solved — these Individual Seven Layer Dips are pretty straightforward to make and easy to transport.
For a side:
This Cilantro-Lime Orzo Pasta Salad looks fancy, tastes great, and only takes 15 minutes to make. If you want a simple recipe that will impress your friends, this is the side to try.
For a main dish:
Wraps are the perfect main dish for your next picnic. Yes, this is a classic, but there’s nothing wrong with sticking with a recipe you know your friends and family will love.
For a snack:
These Greek Salad Skewers are light and flavorful, and you won’t mind interrupting your frisbee game for a taste.
These skewers are easy to make, transport, share and eat. And you can even add a little excitement to the skewer and toast the marshmallows if you are picnicking near a fire pit or outdoor grill.
We hope that you enjoy our suggestions. What are your favorite summer picnic recipes? Let us know in the comments!
