Packable picnic salads are easy to put together and are so transportable and have lots of healthy vegetables! These are not only great salad recipes for a picnic, but they are also all great for lunches, brunches, and barbecues too.

There are some pretty awesome picnic salad recipes here. I am wanting to pack a picnic lunch and head to the beach or concert now that the weather is warming up. When I was a kid, at picnics and barbecues we always had potato or macaroni salad and while those are wonderful, there are so many other choices to change things up.
Be sure to include some fruits in your summer menu planning. We have some delicious and easy banana recipes for summer.
I love collecting great easy salad recipes and this time of year, I am really into salads. During the winter, I have to say that I do not eat as many salads. I usually prefer some comfort food that time of year. Now that the weather is warmer, I say bring on the salads!
