When the weather is fine, all you can think of is to spend some time outdoors and what better excuse than to pack a picnic. Even the thought of sitting outside when its pleasant, sipping on your favorite drinks and nibbling on delicious snacks is so fascinating (makes me go for a picnic right now). Picnics are a great way to spend good time with family and friends it’s also a good way to involve everyone in making the picnic food/snacks.

You may have planned a BBQ for your picnic but while preparing you definitely need something to snack on. I mean, that’s what a picnic is for, food, food, FOOD. Nobody wants to carry the entire kitchen when you want to free yourself from daily house chore and want to spend a good time. Minimum ingredients and items with minimum preparation is what you need to have maximum time relaxing and enjoying.
