Picnics made simple with Morrisons 

During the summer holidays, picnics are a great way to get exploring the great outdoors with the little ones in your family, whether you’re at the local park, on a walk in the countryside or simply at the bottom of the garden. To make things easier, we’ve got a whole selection of tasty picnic food inspiration to help you put a new twist on the classic picnic sandwich. Read on and spruce up your al fresco menu in an instant.

Something lighter

This Caesar-Style Salad is a fab option for boxing up and taking on the move with you. Featuring tuna, eggs and served with ciabatta rolls, it makes a complete dish that you can all dive into, while any leftovers will make a tasty side dish to midweek meals.

The ultimate sandwich

Packed full of flavour and made using the softest white bloomer, this picnic sandwich recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Leave out the salami for a meat-free alternative, or swap out the watercress for spinach for an extra leafy green hit.

A sweet treat

You can’t go far wrong with a flask of tea and a homemade biscuit, try these homemade Jammie Dodgers out for size – the little ones are sure to love helping to cut out the pieces using pastry cutters. You could even mix up the fillings and have some with lemon curd inside.

To keep you going

Delicious as a healthier way to finish of your picnic as well as being super tasty as an in-between meals snack, these Apple FlapJack Bites make a great picnic staple. They’re simple to make, and you could even adapt the recipe to suit your tastes, adding in more fruit if you wish.

A refreshing drink

Picnic recipes needn’t end with the food. Why not fill up a few flasks of this delicious drink? Our Raspberry and Mint Crush is ideal for a refreshing drink while dishing out your favourite snacks. Keep it in vacuum flasks to make sure it stays cool, and you could even pack up a few extra raspberries to place on top when serving.
