There is nothing more enjoyable on a pretty day than enjoying a meal outside with somebody you love. It’s one of my very favorite things to do, whether my husband and I are outside grilling, I am sipping wine on a patio with my sister, or having brunch with friends outdoors. But even more fun is preparing an easy snack or lunch, packing it up with a blanket, and taking it all somewhere special to enjoy a relaxing picnic!
A couple weeks ago, I shared with you 5 simple food safety tips for enjoying the beautiful picnic season. Now, I want to share some of my favorite bloggers’ healthy homemade picnic recipes. These recipes are easy, delicious, and perfect to enjoy whether you’re out with a special someone, a group of friends, or your kids.

Excited that picnic season is here! Everything in this roundup looks so delicious!

I love outdoor dining (definitely one of the perks of living in south Florida). Amongst all the deliciousness going on here, those Lemon Poppy Seed Thumbprint Cookies really jumped out at me- yum!
Definitely a perk of warm weather living! Wish we got more time for outdoor dining, but I soak it up when I can. You will love those cookies Sonali – I just made a batch over the weekend!
I always think about a picnic and then just never doo it, I grab and apple and think oh I’ll eat later, but we visit some places that are so pretty I need to start planning!
I know what you mean Amanda! It’s such a fun thing to do, but needs to be planned out to execute!
So many great recipes! Now if the weather would just get nice enough for me to take my tribe on a picnic I’d be a happy camper for sure!
Thanks Laura! And I totally hear you. We’re back to cold and rainy here this week. Definitely not picnic weather :/
Another amazing recipe round up! I always find so many great options, just wish I had time to make them all. I barely have time to make a meal in general some days.
Thanks Sarah! I know the feeling – I wish I could make them all myself too. But when I’m having company it helps with my planning!
What a great roundup! I love me some picnics! I will definitely be saving this for future picnic reference!
Thanks Kristina! Hope it comes in handy for your spring dining!
Yay! Perfect timing. I’m so ready for picnic season. So much yumminess here.
Me too, Kerri! Thanks so much!
OMG, I can’t remember the last time I went on a picnic! This may be the excuse I need … or at least to take one of these beautiful salads down to the pool for some sun at lunch 🙂
Haha I hope you get to enjoy a picnic or a salad by the pool very soon. Sounds so great to me!
I’m so happy picnic season is here again! So many great choices here. Can’t wait to try some of them out!
Thanks Jenn! Hope you enjoy!
