During these uncertain times, there is nothing better than spending a beautiful sunny day on a family picnic. Check for a spot near a river or lake where you can set up a delicious lunch with kids. The hardest part of the picnic checklist is what food to bring. That’s where our recommendations and local Souq Market comes in. 

Pull out a sturdy picnic blanket, enjoy the view in front of you and let us think about some portable meal ideas. 


Fresh Fruits

If you are out of time but still want to contribute, bag up some fresh fruits. It’s easy to assemble, fun, and delicious. Are you thinking of it as the best solution? I know, since you have been busy at work, home baking and cooking is the last priority.



Honestly, who wouldn’t love a tasty sandwich in their picnic basket? Tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil with delicious flavor and texture are my go-to option. They’re easy to pack, and only a few utensils needed to serve them. No utensils? Even better!


Sausage Rolls

Make a simple sausage roll by using ready-rolled puff pastry and good quality sausages. You don’t have to make your own pastry or grind up the meat mixture. 10 minutes Recipe fresher than anything you’d get from the supermarket aisle.



Try veggie wraps filled with onions, roasted veg, coconut tzatziki, and spicy green sauce.

Nuts or Seeds

Nuts or Seeds 

If you decide to hike during the picnic a high-quality mix of seeds and nuts can contribute to dehydration. Also, look for dried fruits instead of candies.



Make sure to bring some yummy popcorn to keep the family happy. Fill a container with your favorite flavor of Popcorn – to combine it with your picnic wine.

Pasta Salad

Make the most of your family picnic with a simple, easy-to-make, delicious Caprese Pasta Salad. Fresh tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, basil mixed with al dente pasta — it never tasted so good!



Don’t forget to fill your water bottles! Squeeze a little lemon in to promote hydration.

Having the Right Picnic Kits is as important as the right ingredients. Always pack normal plates, cutlery, small chopping board, and a sharp knife. Jam jars, plastic mixing bowls, hand wipes, towels will make the tidying up process easier and comfortable for you and your family.
