I don’t know about you, but this is my favorite time of year. After being stuck inside all winter, I am just super antsy to get out and enjoy some warm weather. No more jackets and scarves, mittens, hats, etc. Just the sun on your arms. Summer is a great time for hanging outside with friends and, of course, eating amazing food. Grilled anything just tastes better when you are eating outside on a blanket in the sun. Picnics are the perfect marriage of enjoying the outdoors and chowing down on delicious foods. I could honestly do it everyday.
Have you ever noticed that there are some foods that just seem to work best for picnics as opposed to other foods? Sure, you can bring a PB&J sandwich with you outside, but chicken salad and coleslaw just seem to be “picnic food.” Fresh salads, grilled chicken, burgers – all these foods just seem to be made for eating outside.
