Let’s Cook! June Dinner Party Menu
It’s summertime! Ready whip up a delicious picnic…
I feel like this menu is kind of a June/July hybrid… although, don’t worry, I’ll make sure you have a July menu too! But when thinking about this one I couldn’t get my mind off of all things picnics! Wether your are have people over or you are packing the cooler for a day at the beach these recipes below won’t let you down. Also I’ve got to be honest with you, I live for a picnic food, ha! Fresh, cold, crisp… when it’s done right 😉 what’s not to love?!
P.S. As always, everything will have a gluten- and dairy-free option if it isn’t already GF/DF friendly, so you can proceed with confidence.

It’s time to set the picnic table!

I’m into avocado ANYTHING. So this sounds so good! Serve it with tortilla chips or even as a topping for tacos. It’s almost a mash-up of mango salsa and guac, two of my favorite things!
Easy Pasta Salad
via Strength & Sunshine
I just love an easy pasta for a picnic and this one checks all the boxes! Easy to make, serve at any temperature, and good for you, too! It comes together in under 30 minutes and is tossed in a tangy vinaigrette. Sure to be a hit!

The perfect cookout side! Veggies on the grill are so so delicious and such a easy way to add a healthy kick to your meal. And they can be served at room temp so grabbing them to go for a picnic is perfect.
GF Almond Cake with Berries on Top
via Cookie + Kate
It’s a red, white, and blue picnic showstopper… and how fresh does it look! It’s an almond-meal based cake with olive oil instead of butter so you can feel good about digging in, too!
(*Note: Top with whipped cream instead of yogurt to keep it DF.)
