Pick up your Picnic!

It's the perfect time for picnics!  Picnickers often head out with complicated dishes, but you can keep it simple and inexpensive by picking up your picnic at Grocery Outlet! Here's how:

Fruit Salad - We have the best of the season in our produce aisles.  Slice berries, melons, pineapples, and citrus for a delicious and refreshing fruit salad.  All it takes is a little time, plus it's healthy and great for your family.  To jazz it up, thread fruit chunks onto skewers for fruit kabobs.


Deviled Eggs - A classic, and totally inexpensive.  There are hundreds of different ways to make them, but give them a twist by replacing some of the spices or fillings.  Check out this article for Deviled Eggs with Pesto, Bacon & Cheddar or Tomato & Capers.

Cold Cuts - Sure, you could make the classic picnic staple of Fried Chicken, but why fuss?  Pick up a bunch of cold cuts from Grocery Outlet's deli section, some cheese, bread, and other sandwich fixings and let everyone make their own sandwich.  Or you could slice salami and cheese, and add olives and tomatoes for a great antipasto platter.
