Picnic Recipes: Delicious Ideas For A Day Out In The Green (With Profit)

Juhu! It’s June and the summer evenings are a bit warmer and you can enjoy the evening for a long time in the open (if you do not have the appropriate outfit, check out the ideas for the perfect summer look from our blogs). A nice occasion after the evening of the evening to make a short stopover in the nature and enjoy a small picnic under the open sky.

The things for a small picnic are packed fast. As a small table, for example, an old wine tray is suitable. This is where all the delicacies for a picnic can be stored. You should of course take the obligatory picnic blanket and for a bit of cosiness and nice atmosphere also some pillows and candles. Other useful things for the picnic basket are napkins, tablecloth, corkscrew and a trash bag.

But what can be prepared for a picnic?

Noodle salad is always delicious. In addition, there are pizzabrot sticks with different dips. For a picnic, I always fill up the food always in screw and wake-glasses. So everything can be transported well and it does not matter. In addition, the picnic table looks nice.

Here comes my little personal recipe selection. Most dishes can also be prepared the day before:

To eat

1. Picnic Recipe: Mediterranean noodle salad (for 2 servings)

  • 100 g of noodles (eg, farfalle)
  • 50 g sheep cheese
  • 20 g dried tomatoes
  • 6 leaves of basil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 toe garlic
  • Salt and pepper

It’s that easy:

  1. Cook the pasta after the pack. Rinse with cold water and rinse thoroughly. Cut the sheep’s cheese and dried tomatoes into small pieces.
  2. Peel the basil leaves. Mix everything with the noodles.
  3. For the dressing add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 clove garlic clove. Season with salt and pepper. Leave in the refrigerator.

2. Picnic Recipe: Pizzabrotstangen

  • 300 g flour
  • 1 pack of dry yeast
  • 1 sts EL salt
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • 200 ml of lukewarm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

It’s that easy:

  1. Mix the flour with the yeast, salt and sugar. Then add the water and olive oil and knead to a smooth dough. Leave in a warm place for 1 hour.
  2. Roll out the dough on a floured working surface (approx. 0.5 cm thick) and cut into 2 cm wide strips. Insert a strip of spiral-shaped material and place it on a sheet of baking paper.
  3. Bake the breadsticks in a pre-heated oven (175 degrees) for about 15 minutes. Then turn the bars once. Tip: For a whole lot, this works well with a finished pizza dough from the cooling rack

For dipping

3. Picnic Recipe: Feta-Paprika Dip

  • 30 g roasted peppers from the glass
  • 150 g of creamy sheep’s cheese
  • 50 g of fresh cheese

  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 250 g of Schmand

To drink

As a drink, we decided to make homemade lemonade. It can be prepared well the day before and is quite simple:
