Sunday Funday May 19th

Posted on May 19, 2013 by in Sunday Funday | 2 comments

This weekend has been absolutely gorgeous! The weather has been a bit more summer-like than spring, but we’ve been enjoying it nonetheless. The husband was busy this weekend, so we didn’t get to go camping, but we did the next best thing: we had a picnic!

This week marks the return of my Campfire Cooking series, but until then, these delicious-looking, picnic worthy dishes will have to hold you over!

Raw Strawberry Cream Tart – Let’s start with dessert first! This fresh, seasonal dish has many decadent components, but mint finish is just enough to make it seem bright and light!

Strawberry, Avocado, and Mint Salad – More strawberries and mint – such a wonderful combo! This salad stands out because it has a chocolate-balsamic dressing. This would be a delightful surprise for any picnic lunch!

Raw Vegan Spring Rolls – These spring rolls would be a great dish for a picnic because they travel well and you can leave the utensils at home – no fork or plate necessary! Also, they don’t look too heavy, so you wouldn’t be bogged down for the hike back to your car.

Avocado Fries – Avocados are one of my favorite springtime eats, and though I’m not big on fried foods, I would make an exception for these tasty avocado treats! This one would be perfect for taking on a picnic with kids, as they’ll eat anything that looks like a French fry 🙂

Tropical Trail Mix – Trail mix is a classic picnic snack, and I love the way this tropical homemade version looks. It’s like on the added sugar (maple syrup) and big on flavor with coconut and mango – yum!

Do you go on picnics? What is your favorite dish to pack?

  • Thanks for the shout-out. I recently made a curried chickpea and carrot salad that I think will be perfect for summer picnics. 🙂

    • Yum – curry is one of my favorite things – that salad sounds delish!
