Picnics are great in theory, but they always seem like so much work. Between attempting to artfully arrange charcuterie and googling “mason-jar cocktails,” our patience tends to crack under the Pinterest-induced pressure. Luckily, we’ve partnered with Sargento to create nine easy-to-make, easy-to-transport recipes that beg to be eaten alfresco.
Grilled Chicken Wraps
Transform your standard grilled chicken with a bundle of fresh veggies and Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese Slices. Adorable packaging highly encouraged.
A Lettuce-Less Salad
Fact: Lettuce is boring. Switch things up with a chilled cucumber salad instead.
Italian Tuna, Spinach and White Bean Sandwiches
Who knew that topping a basic tuna sandwich with creamy Sargento Ultra Thin Provolone Cheese Slices, sweet roasted red peppers and cannellini beans could be so life-changing?
The New Pasta Salad
Spicy couscous with yogurt is as delicious cold as it is hot, making it the perfect bring-anywhere dish.
Smoked Turkey, Pepper Jack and Avocado Wraps
Turkey wraps with zesty salsa, slices of creamy avocado and Sargento Ultra Thin Pepper Jack Cheese Slices will make everyone happy. Trust us.
Chopped Greek Salad Pitas
Toss a few sweet plum tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers and kalamata olives in a vinaigrette and top with Sargento Ultra Thin Provolone Cheese Slices for for sandwiches that rival the eats at your favorite takeout joint.
Grown-Up Juice Boxes
These cute little portable sippers (in raspberry-lime and lemonade-iced tea flavors) can be made in advance and are secretly even better with alcohol. A win-win.
Gooey Lemon Bars
Picnics and tangy lemon bars: friends since forever.
No-Bake Peanut-Butter Pretzel Bars
