Create the perfect spring & summer picnic with our top tips!
We are now in the beautiful season of spring and here at The Fashion Visuals we have already spotted a touch of sunshine which has certainly brightened up our days. What we love about the change of seasons is not only the wardrobe change that we get to participate in but the fresh days out divulging in tasty foods which is why we are sharing our picnic ideas with you!
Picnics are a great way to enjoy the nice weather and they can be catered to your individual health and treat needs as well as budgets as you can actually prepare some of the food and drink instead of buying everything in. The following food and drink ideas are a combination of our healthy and naughty treats which we will certainly be adding to our picnic basket this year …
First up is ‘Griddled chicken with quinoa Greek salad’ this tasty dish is perfect for all the health conscious lovers and can be packed neatly in a plastic box complete with serving equipment to make it a great sharing dish.
As we all know it isn’t a picnic without a tasty selection of sandwiches and there are so many selections of breads, meats, salads and sauces that can be used to ensure your mouth waters with every bite! Our personal favourites are ham salad with a slice of tasty cheese.
With any party, picnic or event it is always handy to have some finger nibbles to pick at and our favourites are everything from garlic olives to pistachios, almonds, peanuts and crisps!
Just like most meals everyone likes to enjoy a tasty desert and this healthy choice is perfect for the fruit lovers and so easy to pack in the picnic basket and share out!
For the real sweet tooth lovers you can’t go wrong with a selection of buttery and sugary cupcakes to get your taste buds tingling and these yummy butterfly cupcakes with passion fruit cream will make the perfect addition to your picnic.
To really top off your picnic you should make sure you stock up on some refreshing fruit beverages in addition to water and alcohol which is a standard thing to pack. These amazing smoothies with a twist of exotic fruits and protein (great for health addicts) can be found at Kinetica Sports and will really finish off your amazing spread.
