12 Keto Picnic Recipes to Make Before Summer Is Over
Sunny skies and a jar full of homemade cheese crackers have you in the mood for a picnic? Of course! But there’s some good news, too: There are plenty of keto-friendly foods that you can pack up and enjoy outdoors. Carb-free picnic, here we come!
1. Cloud Bread
While it’s totally possible to have a great picnic without bread, you won’t regret bringing along some carb-free crusts.
2. Avocado Chicken Salad
Avocado makes this chicken salad extra rich and creamy, so it’s ready to scoop on salads, keto crackers or just eat by the spoonful.
3. Green Goddess Wraps
Boston lettuce works as the perfect pocket to wrap veggies into fork-free bites.
4. Greek Wedge Salad
This wedge salad adds a note of bright crispness to your picnic spread. Consider packing each element separately and assembling on-site (it won’t be too hard, we promise).
5. Cold Sesame Cucumber Noodles
No noodles? No problem. Spiralizing zucchini keeps your picnic carb-free.
6. Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad Stuffed Peppers
This light and crunchy chicken salad is packed in pepper boats that are super easy to transport and eat outdoors.
7. Caprese Salad With Grilled Zucchini
Add something extra to your summer caprese with this recipe that’s a seamless update on the classic.
8. Spring Crudités with Romesco Sauce
A picnic can be awesome without carbs, but without crudites? Pass. A crunchy platter paired with homemade dips will be the star of the blanket.
9. Avocado Deviled Eggs
Green eggs? Yes, please. Keep these deviled eggs on ice to keep them cool during your alfresco afternoon.
10. Light and Tangy Coleslaw
Score! This slaw isn’t totally slathered in mayo. In fact, the longer it sits in the light dressing, the more flavorful it gets.
11. Colorful Peanut Noodle Jar
For a keto jar, you’ll have to take out the soba noodles, but spiralized veggies are the perfect substitution (plus, we’d eat anything that was smothered in a homemade peanut sauce).
12. Cauliflower, Olive, Pepper and Caper Salad (Insalata di Rinforzo)
This crunchy salad is just salty enough, thanks to capers, olives and a tangy dressing.
