Summer picnics may just be our favorite part of summer! The sheer concept of “picnic” brings a smile to our face. Anywhere can be the perfect setting for an intimate meal with friends, family and loved ones, and always cultivates beautiful memories. Whether it be the beach, the park, a hike to a private mountain peak or simply an evening spent in your backyard, a picnic is truly a time to connect and feast in all of mother nature’s glory. Leave behind the crowded restaurants, formal attire and the stress of arriving somewhere on time. A picnic is your private party on your time…when, where and with whomever you wish! Whether you pedal, walk or hike to your perfect outdoor dining location, take along our favorites for the ideal summer picnic!
The ultimate summer feast wouldn’t be complete with out one! Pick up local, fresh baked bread, a variety of cheeses (spreadable goat cheese is a sure winner!), grapes, olives or olive tapenade, pesto spread, thinly sliced prosciutto, crackers, sliced apples, honey to drizzle. Wah-lah!
This beauty is easily made ahead of time. Just spoon on bread for a savory and filling treat! (Tip: use our easy recipe…Chop up Roma tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil – toss together – Tah-dah!)
Pack up your favorite leafy salad or the summertime classic pasta salad for a light refreshing main course.
FRESH STRAWBERRIES & WATERMELON
Nothing says American picnic like refreshing fruits on a warm summer day or evening and these red beauties are loved by all! (Tip: if you have time chop ahead of time, slide onto skewer sticks, & pop into tupperwear)
Everyone loves a little sweet treat after some savory snacks. If you don’t have time for homemade cookies, may we recommend Bahlsen chocolate biscuits, a gourmet favorite!
Stay hydrated loves!
Ummmm because, summer!
For extra credit bring along some flowers and watch your company awe at your attention to detail!
So pack up and picnic your heart away #SoleMates! xoxo
