Delicious Summer Picnic Recipes - Simple Foods Which Delight

Are you seeking some interesting summer picnic recipes?

With the weather changing from cold to mild, spring-like weather, it causes me to begin thinking about summer picnics with friends and family.

I think about the fantastic summer foods that people bring to the picnic, and this year, it is my goal to be on the ball and have a few unforgettable, delicious summer dishes to add to the picnic menu. My search for the "knock your socks off" dishes has led me to a couple of summer picnic recipes that I'd like to share with you.

The first summer picnic food that I wanted to be able to make people rave about is baked beans. What summer picnic does not have some sort of delectable baked beans available? In my search to create the perfect baked beans dish, I have come up with a wonderful, delicious baked beans summer picnic recipe. This recipe is simple, does not require a lot of time to make, and the end product is guaranteed to make your beans the hit of summer picnics.

Best Summer Baked Beans

  • 1 can (20oz) baked beans
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 large onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard

    In a casserole dish, simply combine the beans, brown sugar, honey, ketchup, onion, and mustard. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes, and enjoy the best summer baked beans you've ever tasted.

    The next of the summer picnic recipes that I wanted to perfect was good, old-fashioned potato salad. My mother made the best potato salad, so I drew from her recipe and added a few "secrets" of my own, and there I had it: The world's best potato salad!

    Donna's Best Potato Salad

  • 5 large potatoes
  • 3 eggs, boiled
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 4 dill pickles, chopped
  • 1/2 cup black olives
  • 1/2 cup green olives
  • 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 cup light-mayonnaise

    Boil the potatoes with the skins on and boil the eggs at the same time until the potatoes are soft. Let them cool and then peel the potatoes and eggs, cut up, and put in a large bowl. Add the onion, carrot, pickles, black, and green olives. Add the garlic, pepper, mustard, and mayonnaise and stir thoroughly. There you have it - Donna's best potato salad.

    Hope you enjoy these simple yet delicious summer picnic recipes!
