Headed to the beach soon? We know that finding a "beach friendly" food can be tough, especially with kiddos...seriously, how does sand wind up everywhere? Although convenient for a beach picnic, we don't just want to settle for a sub-par sandwich and chips. C'mon, we're on vacay and it's time to switch it up!
Sweet? Tangy? Cold? Crunchy? Grab whatever salad you want and bring it to the beach! We love a summery Watermelon, Cucumber, and Feta salad here. Or, if you’re looking for something more classic, try this Ultimate Caprese Salad!
Wraps and Sandwiches
Or, if a sandwich isn’t much your style, try out a warm weather ready wrap! A Cranberry Turkey Pinwheel is beach perfect! These Sesame Chicken Veggie Wraps are also super easy to take -- just be sure to pack up a cooler. On the sandwich side you could try this Smoked Tempeh with Sundried Tomato -- or this Pressed Pesto Picnic sandwich with Eggplant and Prosciutto is heavenly!
Whether it's Sabra or something homemade, humus paired with crackers or veggies can keep your fuel up while at the beach. If humus isn’t your favorite then there are tons of other options. Try a Crunchy Summer Salsa, or even, check out this Bacon-Pimiento Guacamole. Be sure to find a way to keep it cold so it’s extra refreshing after a few hot hours in the sand!
We hope you enjoyed these delicious (and also not overly complicated) foods for your beach picnic! Let us know if you try any of these delicious recipes. And, as always, don't forget to snag yourself some Shark OFF shark repellent jewelry before you hit the beach.
