As summer comes to an end, we are going to soak up the sun and spend as much time as possible out doors – and fortunately we have Central Park pretty much in our backyard! Our ideal day is spent with some good company and delicious food – so here are our favorite menu items for a picnic.

Maryland Crab Cake Sandwich: Sandwiches are a picnic classic.  They are delicious and not too messy to eat.  Just make sure to carry some hand-sanitizer before completely devouring your sandwich.

Grilled Chicken Skewers: Skewers are so fun and easy to eat without being messy.  They work for barbecues in the park or picnics! Go for the classic chicken skewers or create your own with vegetables or fruits.

Margherita Flatbread: Just pop it quickly in the oven before heading out the door so it will be nice and warm when you eat it.  This is such a great sharing dish and who doesn’t like pizza?  Add your own spin on it by topping your flatbread with your favorite toppings.

We hope that some of our favorite picnic appropriate dishes inspired you to try it out for your next picnic or outdoor activity!
