7 Picnic Ready Recipes for the Holiday Weekend

Who’s excited for the long holiday weekend? (cue both hands raised and waiving frantically in the air!)

Finally the weather is starting to cooperate and we can’t wait to throw a blanket down and curl our toes in the cool grass at the park next to our home. And just in time, we came this great article by the Daily Meal, of 7 picnic-worthy recipes to try out! You still have plenty of time to order online in time for lots of outdoor blanket time!

Don’t forget to add paper plates and cups to your grocery list – no one wants to haul back dirty dishes 🙂

Here is our favorite out of the bunch – so if you see it spread out on the lawn on a park this weekend, feel free to stop over and say hi! (See all 7 recipes here!)

Chicken Strawberry Salad with Avocado Poppy Seed Dressing

½ cup sugar
⅓ cup white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
1 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 avocado, peeled and seeded
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Combine all ingredients except poppy seeds in a blender or food processor. Pulse until combined. Add additional water 1 tablespoon at at time if dressing is too thick. Stir in poppy seeds. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Note: This dressing will keep at least a week in the fridge.
