A collection of all-star picnic recipes with a Mediterranean twist! From zesty mouthwatering salads and dips, to sides, pastas, Greek chicken wings, kabobs & desserts!
When my daughter came home from school yesterday, there was a little extra spring in her step. First, because she has only two days of school left--the finish line is near! And, she had ended her day with a lunch picnic on the school lawn. Granted, it was nothing more than a sack lunch and some juice; still, a picnic took place.
People have different ideas of picnics and picnic recipes. When I think about picnic recipes, I think bright, flavor-packed, unfussy recipes. Salads and sides are king at most picnics and potlucks, but I never mind a little grilled chicken or meat.
If you're eager to get some "picnic-ing" going, I've gathered 25 of my favorite picnic recipes, including a few from other sites. Not surprising to loyal readers, these are picnic recipes with a Mediterranean twist. Enjoy!
