Refreshing Salads for Picnics

With Charlie taking up karting, we’ll be spending a lot of time together as a family at the track. The only bad part is that there really aren’t any restaurants near by that we can run and grab a meal from. There is a great little BBQ place that will have a food truck at the track but I’m not sure if the food will be safe for us so we’re going to be coming up with some different meals that we can take with us. Since Rachael and I love different kinds of salads I though this weekend we’d have a salad but it meant finding one that both of us would love and I didn’t want just mixed greens with a little chicken. I wanted something different. So I started searching. Look at these delicious refreshing salads for picnics that I found.

Refreshing Salads for Picnics

  1. Of course I had to chose our Parisian Mumbai Salad as the first on our list. I love this salad and because of the different ingredients it’s not an every day type of salad. 
  2. Our friends over at Simply Whisked have a delicious Mediterranean Chickpea Salad that is light but filling. 
  3. If you love California Pizza Kitchen’s Waldorf Salad you should try the Waldorf Salad from I heart Eating. Simply delicious!
  4. Salad doesn’t always have to include lettuce and this Corn and Chickpea Salad from Simply Whisked is delicious evidence of that.
  5. I love recipes that are quick and easy and I always turn to As Easy As Apple Pie for those type of recipes and the Chopped Asian Salad with Peanut Dressing is proof that it can be easy to have delicious salads.
  6. For packing our salads I love the idea of these Mason Jar Salads from Must Have Mom. I can make a ton of these not just for the track and picnics but for lunch for the kids.
  7. For a delicious and protein packed salad I love this Greek Quinoa Salad with Chicken from Delicious Meets Healthy.
  8. I love to make use of fresh produce as much as possible and the kids love eating fruit so why not combine them to get this Peach and Raspberry Chicken Salad from Love Bakes Good Cakes.
  9. Flour on My Face has a great recipe to use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to make Rotisserie Chicken Salad.
  10. Spice it up, leave out the lettuce and add in pasta for a completely different taste in this Jalapeno Ranch Pasta Salad from Simply Stacie.
