We’re taking the guess work out of picnic planning by handing over our list of easy vegetarian picnic foods that will leave your party craving more. Keep this roster of healthy picnic snacks in your back pocket to keep your beach, park, and patio menus fresh all summer long.
Strawberry Mint Salad
If you’re tired of massaging kale, you’ve come to the right place. This Strawberry Mint Salad is super easy to prep and it’ll keep you cool as a cucumber (which is, not surprisingly, another main ingredient in this easy vegan recipe). Jessica of the AIP Lifestyle blog calls this salad, “summer in a bowl” and we couldn’t agree more. It’s a simply refreshing addition to any outdoor meal.
Power Lentil Salad with Ginger-Mint Vinaigrette
It will come as a surprise to no one that our favorite part of this Mediterranean-inspired power salad is the fresh, homemade ginger-mint dressing. That, and the fact that it’s best enjoyed at room temperature, which means you can refrigerate it the night before and it’ll totally survive a couple hours of hot sun. Now that’s what we call easy vegetarian picnic food!
Healthy Creamy Mexican Kale Salad
Here’s the thing about tacos: They’re too messy to pack in a picnic, but too summery and delicious not to. That’s why this Mexican Kale Salad is one of our favorite healthy picnic snacks. It’s got all the wonderful flavors of a taco platter, but with less carbs, and all the easy-to-pack appeal. Even avocado haters will fall for its fresh, creamy avo-dressing.
On a hot, summer day, sushi always hits the spot. It also makes a fabulously easy vegetarian picnic food. Impress the hell out of your friends and family by preparing this vegetarian sushi recipe for your next outdoor adventure. Need a little extra help with your rolling skills?

Avocado Summer Rolls with Sweet n’ Spicy Cilantro Dipping Sauce
In the same vein as the sushi recipe above, these Avocado Summer Rolls are a fresh and easy vegetarian picnic food your fellow diners will love. They’re not too heavy, not too light, and full of flavor. We definitely recommend making extra!
Tangy Veggie Wrap
This perfect summer wrap recipe is packed full of fresh, detoxifying ingredients like peppers, spinach, sunflower seeds, and ginger. It only takes about 25 minutes to prepare, and it can easily be made vegan to accommodate your whole picnic party. The recipe makes enough wraps for a hungry party of two, or you can chop them into smaller rolls to serve as a healthy picnic snack.
