Vegan Picnic Foods

Summer is the perfect time of year for a picnic. Grab your basket and a blanket. Pick up a refreshing cold drink and pack along some easy and delicious vegan picnic choices.

Main Dish

Start with a sandwich. Sandwiches are portable, easy to pack, and require no utensils.  It’s a perfect choice for a picnic.  This Vegan Avocado Caprese Sandwich from Healthy Happy Life is a great choice.

Another great sandwich choice is the Ultimate Veggie Sandwich from Shutterbean. It’s perfect for an afternoon at the park.

If you don’t want a sandwich, but still want something portable, bring along Vegan Summer Rolls from May I Have That Recipe.

Side Dish

Dish up a simple salad for a side dish. Try Vegan Macaroni Salad from Healthier Steps if you’re looking for a classic picnic choice.

Fiesta Bean Salad from The Garden Grazer is a healthy choice and can also serve as a main dish if you want to skip the sandwich.

Or, you can pack along this Spring Artichoke Salad from Right @ Home. Yum.


Dessert needs to be easy and portable and luckily there are so many great choices.

Is there anything more portable than a cookie? Chewy Almond Butter Cookies from The Vedge are simple and delicious.

Pack along a classic. Bring along a batch of Easy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies from Baker Bettie. They’re a classic for a reason.

What will you bring along on your next picnic?
