Simple but tasty: ham and cheese sandwich
Ham and cheese is a classic for a reason — and with this recipe, you might fall in love with it all over again. With mayonnaise to turn the outside into a crispy pleasure and a honey-dijon mustard mix to spice up the interior, it’s hard to go wrong with this picnic staple.
For the carb-counter: collard wrap bento box
This collard wrap provides a low-calorie take on the traditional bento box. Hummus and avocado add a nice, creamy texture to the wrap, while shredded chicken or sautéed tofu provide heft. Add carrot sticks and a piece of dark chocolate for a full bento box experience.
Pasta for the whole family: chicken-bacon-ranch pasta salad
Pasta can be great hot or cold — and is the perfect dish to anchor any picnic spread. With crumbled bacon and cooked chicken breasts, this recipe is sure to satisfy meat-lovers afraid of the word “salad.” Though the recipe calls for ranch dressing, consider substituting barbeque sauce for a spicier alternative.
