Five Food Steps for the Perfect Picnic
Ready for a picnic at one of the beautiful Indy parks? Imagine how nice, relaxing and full of delicious food and drinks a day near the White River can be! Picnicking during the transition of spring to summer is always nice. It is not super hot yet but you can already enjoy a sunny day near the water.
Create your perfect picnic with these five simple steps.
The first step is meat. If you don’t feel like grilling on the spot you can easily prepare it at home. You can boil, roast, bake and even pull the meat. Place it into a plastic box and take it with you.
The second step is salad – a delicious must-have on your picnic. Make a vegetable salad with beetroots, carrots, potatoes and olive oil – always nutritious and healthy. For green salad lovers, Romaine salad or Iceberg will work best. Mayo, mustard or yogurt dressing are easy to carry in a small container – just add them before serving. Nice and fresh taste is guaranteed!
Step number three is pastry. You can buy some fresh croissants or nice cinnamon swirls, bagels or buns from a local pastry shop.
Number four is cheese; soft cheese, hard cheese or even blue cheese – it has to be in your basket. Cheese is a perfect company to wine, berries, honey and fresh bread.
The last step is drinks. Summer sangria with fresh strawberries, peaches and mint will make your picnic special and refreshing. Grab your favorite basket, cook some meat and enjoy a sunny day in a park. Bon appetit! More recipes on HelenaRecipes.com.
