Summertime Fun: Herbal Picnic Recipes

Summertime is the best time for relaxing and having fun in the sun. One of my favorite summertime activities is having a picnic.

Whether it’s a romantic afternoon date or just an afternoon with the girls, a picnic is classic; but picnic food is generally quick and can sometimes lack flavor. It’s time to spice up classic picnic dishes with a variety of herbs! Try these recipes from our July 2006 article Picnic Ideas and Recipes. Also try our Garlic Mayonnaise and our Herb Fried Chicken.

Iced Herb Gazpacho

This healthy, easy summer recipe is best when it’s made from garden-fresh ingredients. Chill for at least an hour or two before serving.
