Planning a Canada Day picnic? We've some picnic classics to help you celebrate.
Start with a healthy salad--all the ones below are great to-go options. They'll stay crunchy and delicious, even dressed ahead of time, since they don't call for lettuce leaves that would wilt after a while. For the main course, go fork-free with any of Stefano's killer sandwich options. And for a real crowd-pleaser, our Classic Muffuletta is actually one giant sandwich you can throw in your picnic basket and cut on the spot to feed a hungry bunch.
Round it all out with a tropical fruit salad that signals summer. This is the kind of fresh and simple food that tastes BETTER outdoors. So pack a blanket, fill the cooler with ice and celebrate Canada Day with this picnic-perfect fare:
Tabbouleh with Quinoa and Chickpeas
All-Dressed Potato Salad
Red Cabbage Coleslaw
Hearty Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Chicken Salad Sandwich with Apples and Walnuts
Fruit Salad With Fresh Coconut and Mint
