July is National Picnic Month, so I’m sharing a few food blogger’s favorite summer picnic recipes to inspire your perfect spread! Summer is in full swing, so grab your favorite basket and get outdoors with friends and family and have some fun! Also, don’t forget the drinks.
You’ll want to stay hydrated in the summer heat, so whip up a batch of this Strawberry Lemonade or refreshing Cucumber Mint Water to bring along. I’m sharing my favorite Southern Vinegar Slaw as my picnic recipe, it’s simple to make, packs easily and goes with so many different meats.
It’s a summer favorite in this house. Local parks, lakes and even your backyard are great locations to plan an outdoor meal. Games like cornhole, volleyball, badminton, football, and frisbee are fun to include when planning your day. What are your favorite picnic recipes? Please share in the comments below!
