Take plenty of fresh salad. Make it the day before: it can be as simple or as complicated a recipe as you want. A little iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, sliced onions and peppers make a simple salad that can be added to a sandwich, eaten with cold meat or enjoyed on its own.
Take a look at our other salad recipes and dressings.
Finger foods are best when eaten outdoors. Lots of fruit and vegetables are nature's own finger foods.
Strawberries somehow taste even nicer when they are eaten outdoors. If you are a chocoholic, try our chocolate strawberries.
Cut a pineapple into slices and carry them in an airtight container: they are loved by young and old alike.
Carrots and celery are brilliant finger foods, cut into slices and then covered in a garlic or sour cream dip. Mmmm- my mouth is watering at the thought.
Other fingers foods to consider are cherry tomatoes, grapes, bananas, nuts, pickled onions amd sliced peppers.
Of course quiche is another good picnic food. Why not cook three or four of our spinach and cheese quiche and pop them in the freezer so they are ready for a picnic on the spur of the moment when the weather is nice?
Don’t forget about pasta. A plate of salad pasta is just the thing for a picnic menu.
Apple Pie is an old favourite, and what could be better than an apple pie with cream, eaten outdoors in the sunshine. If you don’t like apple pie then what about pumpkin pie - a delicious treat with custard or yogurt.
Yogurt is another good picnic food. Natural yogurt can be eaten by itself or poured over desserts or salads.
Enjoy your good picnic food and have a fabulous time.
