3 Appetizers Perfect for Your Next Picnic

May 6, 2020 | Food, Starters

Outdoor meals are best enjoyed in these couple of months leading up to the intense summer heat. If you’re dying to get out of the house after these shelter-in-place orders, we’re here with some great ideas. Pour yourself a cold drink, grab a picnic basket and pick up one of these refreshing to-go orders perfect for a meal outside.

Spicy Pimento Cheese Spread

Nothing screams “picnic” like a delicious dip. Pimento cheese is a staple in the south, and the chefs at Palm Valley add a gourmet twist you just can’t resist. We pair our cheese spread with homemade crisps that won’t fall apart when you scoop (a problem we all hate but never talk about!)

This appetizer is a great snack, but not filling enough for an entire meal when shared. Pair our spicy pimento spread with the other two appetizers or an entree for a meal made in picnic heaven. 

Ceviche of the Day

Leave this one in your cooler until it’s time to eat and you’re in for a treat! There’s nothing quite better than freshly made ceviche. Responsibly sourced seafood, fresh vegetables and tasty citrus come together for this outstanding flavor combo. 

A dollop of ceviche on a melba cracker is all you need. We love this dish for picnics because it’s simple to transport, perfect on a warm day and a favorite across the board. 

Grilled Octopus & White Bean Salad

We wrote an entire post about this salad here, because it’s that good. It’s rare to find this combination of flavors in one knockout dish. This chilled salad is a great starter or entree during Jacksonville’s humid summers. 

The star of the show is really the fresh herbs. The perfect blend of seasonings elevates the natural flavors of the base ingredients. We love this salad paired with a sauvignon blanc or light beer for the ultimate flavor combination.
