Picnics and Parties are Better with Berries!
If you’ve been looking forward to “strawberry season,” so have we!
Across America, berry fans have been planning Mother’s Day parties, Memorial Day barbecues, graduation outings, and summer picnics. We at Well•Pict Berries have got your berry needs covered. Here are our favorite picnic and party ideas to make your spring and summer sweet – and healthy, too.
Classic Strawberry Shortcake
This version of the all-American classic features a lightly sweetened biscuit, fresh ripe strawberries, and real whipped cream. A delicious and traditional way to celebrate National Strawberry Month. For directions on how to make this, visit the Food Network website.
Well•Pict Strawberry Banana Mini Muffins
These irresistible muffins are perfect additions for picnics, and just as convenient for anytime snacking. They’re easy to make, nutritious, and fun for all ages. Learn how to make our recipe here.
Grilled Salmon and Berry Salad
Moist, healthy salmon makes for a delicious change from the usual barbecued chicken or ribs, and a tender spinach salad with citrus mint dressing is the perfect finishing touch. Our own Well•Pict chefs show you how easy this healthy dinnertime meal is to put together. Get the recipe here.
Well•Pict Berries Crostini
Here’s a party snack that combines savory and sweet tastes. Grilled slices of crusty bread are slathered with two kinds of cheese and then topped with herbs, prosciutto and ripe Well•Pict berries.
Baked Strawberry Chips
Why serve the same old potato chips when you can make a unique, healthier version made of strawberries? You’ll look like you went to great lengths to make these Baked Strawberry Chips, but really, nothing could be easier!
For a sweet Mother’s Day brunch — or any other happy celebration — try fresh, strawberry mimosas as a prettier and tastier alternative to the regular orange juice version. Learn how to make our version here.
Centerpieces and party favors you can eat!
For parties and special events, whole strawberries can be dipped in chocolate or candy melts, using colors and decorations to match whatever occasion you’re celebrating. Make a pretty centerpiece with dipped berry “roses,” or simply serve whole dipped berries on a platter. See our recent blog post that contains easy dipping instructions.
