Apricot Chicken Salad with Blanched Almonds — The best part about summer is how easy it is to find fruit and other fresh produce.

It also happens to be a dairy free recipe too so anyone at your summer picnic can enjoy this healthy recipe.
Asian Coleslaw (pictured) — Coleslaw is an obvious picnic side dish because of how easy it is to throw everything together and hit the road. This Asian inspired dish takes the traditional components of coleslaw and brightens each ingredient. The ginger is what sets this side apart, along with the tart citrus juice. Throw it on top of a burger to add extra crunch or eat it as is. Either way it's healthy, easy and gluten free.
Crispy and Healthy Chicken Fingers — Kids love picnics just as much as adults but feeding picky eaters outside of the traditional food at home can be a challenge, especially when you're looking for gluten free recipes. These quick and easy chicken fingers are great for kids and adults too. Grab ketchup for the kids and any favorite gluten free dipping sauce for the adults and you have one of the best super simple picnic recipes for every age.
Ceci Cracker Chips — No picnic is complete without a salty snack. Keep it no hassle with a bite sized crunch that will make you wonder why you ever spent money on those pricy gluten free products at the grocery. They're nutritious too, so grab a handful and use them as a canvas for your favorite gluten free salsa, hummus, or any other dip.
Pico de Gallo (pictured) — What makes salsa so great is the big pieces of tomato and onion. This recipe is the cream of the crop when it comes to Mexican flavors with fresh cilantro and lime juice. Have fun with this make ahead recipe because the longer it sits, the better the flavors blend making it awesome to bring out to a picnic.
