Host a Vegan Picnic with a Healthy Menu

Vegan Picnic Recipes

By Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian

Labor Day is the time to share a fun and festive outdoor picnic with the kids, family, or friends. When preparing your picnic, focus on foods that travel well, taste great and provide a pretty presentation when serving.

This portable menu begins with a fresh asparagus salad that gives a welcome pop of green to this delightful ‘end-of-summer’ meal. To lighten your picnic basket load, try serving a hearty main-dish salad in edible and colorful bowls. On the side, appealing mini-muffins add substance and good taste.

For dessert, serve fancy and festive homemade lollipops, adding a bit of whimsy to this breezy meal. (No one needs to know that these portable pops are really easy to prepare!) A mint-infused fresh lemonade rounds out this perfect picnic meal.

Whether you are picnicking with vegans, vegetarian or omnivores – they will love this vibrant and scrumptious warm weather menu!
