Picnic Recipes (Most Popular)
i tweaked a recipe from the "eat clean" book by tasca reno, i changed the flour...and used lighter bake oil replacement for half the fat...these are chewy and light when you want a healthy sweet cookie.
(if you dont have sunsweet lighter bake you can use applesauce)
Initially, this recipe may seem like allot of steps but it’s really easy and worth any trouble. I make little 3” sandwich, using a good quality dinner roll or a larger sandwich roll for a meal. I have gotten rave reviews and requests for a return engagement when I have made these for parties. Yippy!Submitted by ANNETTEBELISLE
I absolutely love this salad! You make it the day before you plan to serve it. It makes a LOT so the calories really don't turn out to be too high considering the ingredients! Can be used year-round but we love it in the spring/summer. This recipe uses light ingredients and you cannot tell a difference. If you want to use full-fat it will not hurt, but will change the nutrition stats!Submitted by RACHELMARLENA
Thicken the yogurt by draining the whey from it ( about 5+ hours) through a coffee filter.
Grate cucumber and sprinkle with salt. Let the cucumber rest for 30 min. in a sieve over a sink or bowl to drain moisture from it. Pat dry with paper towels.
Mix the onion, minced garlic, dill, cucumber, salt, pepper & lemon juice into the yogurt.
Great as a dip or as a sandwich spread.
Pleasing to the eye and the tummy =)
Cool, spicy, tangy and addicting.
Tip: Doing this for a picnic? DO NOT THAW THE CORN! It will thaw by the time you need it and help keep the salad cool!
Hint: If you can't find the canned "diced tomatoe & green chillies" simply substitute w/one tomatoe and another quarter of that jalapeno pepper.
Great to prepare the night before a picnic :)
Best part of this recipe is it's not an exact science. Eyeball it and play w/the vinegars! I prefer more cilantro & jalapeno for a more "Mex" and less "Tex" taste!
These are very-easy-to-make muffins with a slight banana aroma and mouth full of chocolate!
The original recipe came from Food&Wine magazine. I have reduced the amount of sugar significantly as the ripen banana is usually very sweet. And I made three times less muffins than the original recipe called.
