Easy Picnic Recipe Ideas
There isn’t anything much better than getting together with friends and family to eat, drink and play games. That’s why picnics are my favorite! Today I have joined some of my blogging gal pals to share our top picnic friendly recipes with you. These recipes are easy to follow, can feed a crowd and cover everything from salads to desserts. These recipes have been approved by our families and we are so excited to share them with you. Bonus…we are going to be sharing our family favorite recipes with you year round! I am sooooo excited to tell you about a super fun series that we have put together to help you plan meals all year and take the stress of meal planning.
Introducing, The Cooking Housewives! I have joined some of my favorite real moms/housewives for a fun recipe series! Don’t get me wrong, we are not your average housewives…this group is full of some seriously talented ladies that not only know how to cook, but are also kick ass DIYers, run their own blogs and businesses, have some mad building skills and so much more. The added bonus here is that we are all about keepin’ it real and making life simple. That is why we decided to band together and start this fun series. We will be sharing our recipes on the 1st Wednesday of each month, and each month there will be a fun theme. This month’s theme is picnic food since we are still in the middle of summer. Each month, the theme will be something that fits with the time of year we are in, and hopefully will help you come up with some more recipes that make it easier for you to plan your family meals. As mentioned before, these recipes have been tested by our families and are simple to make…no fancy shmancy here!

One of my favorite things to take to a picnic is my Corn and Black Bean Salsa! The recipe makes enough for a large crowd, and has become a favorite among my family and friends. It’s super easy to toss together and is made with half canned goods and half fresh produce. I typically serve it with scoop tortilla chips, but it can also be enjoyed as a garnish on tacos or on top of a taco salad. Even though this salsa recipe makes a ton of dip, it goes quickly because it is just that good! You can grab the recipe for my Corn and Black Bean Salsa HERE or find it with the other amazing recipes below!
