You may have thought that the experience of eating can’t get any better, but you would – fortunately – be incorrect. Picnic season is upon us! You will feel the difference in your dining experience when the sun is warming your shoulders and you realize that you can lay down whenever you’d like due to the conveniently placed blanket. The homes of Montage at Brookview have lush green lawns that are ideal for hosting a picnic for you, your family and your friends. If you’re interested in some fresh new recipe ideas, browse the suggestions below to create the perfect picnic!

Blueberry Lemonade

You shouldn’t be parched at your own picnic. This lemonade is refreshing, sweet, and tastes like summer. If you prefer your drink to be more tangy, reduce the added sugar and enjoy the zing!

Old-Fashioned Creamy Potato Salad

It’s a classic dish with a fresh taste. Potato salad is a universal side at picnics and barbecues alike, so make sure to incorporate it into your 5-star menu!

Bacon Lettuce Cups

Moderation is key in life; it allows you to treat yourself while staying healthy. These bacon lettuce cups are a perfect example – they’re savory, crunchy, and have the right balance to allow all of the ingredients to shine.

Strawberry Salsa

Strawberries are the ultimate summer food. They’re delicious baked in a pie, combined with cream, and – most of all – freshly picked. If you’ve never tried them as the base for salsa, prepare your taste buds; whenever strawberries are involved, the outcome is delicious!

Italian pinwheels

Finger foods are all the rage at picnics, so these pinwheels are ideal bites to have on hand. Both children and adults will enjoy this take on an Italian wrap, so make sure to have plenty prepared!

Tomato-Manchego Tartlets

These tartlets are an incredible combination of a few ingredients and are deceptively easy to make. Add some prosciutto or arugula on top to add even more flavor and texture.

Broccolini Pasta Salad

Something was definitely missing! A cold pasta salad does wonders on a hot summer day, and this dish is no exception. The Dijon mustard will give it a little kick to rouse you from the after-food-nap you’re surely headed towards.

Raspberry Tart

Last – but most certainly not least – dessert! Unless you have a vendetta against sweet, mouth-watering pastries, you’re going to want to include this raspberry tart as the pièce de résistance of your fantastic picnic.

There you have it – foodie heaven, all laid out on a picnic blanket. Sprawl out, get comfortable, and enjoy the fruits of your labor in the familiar comfort of your own backyard.
