It’s Time for a Spring Picnic – Three Dishes You Should Bring

Brandon Catering

Summer SaladSpring is a time for laughter and fun, but do you know what else it’s time for? Picnics! That’s right, you can have picnics again!

You can sit under the warm sun and enjoy the company of good friends, good fun, and most importantly good food, and you might even consider hiring an Orlando Catering company like us to make the event complete, but here’s an important question: what should you bring to  your picnic? We have three suggestions that you’re going to absolutely love.

Orlando Caterers Recommend Going Cold

You probably have a ton of ideas but there ARE a few things that we would strongly recommend staying away from. Hot foods, for example, are something to stay away from on a picnic. Sure you might love them, but they might not STAY hot on the commute to your picnic area unless you use our exclusive catering service.

Another thing we’d recommend staying away from during a picnic is soup unless you’re having a formal sit down meal in the middle of the park. So what does that leave you? It leaves you with all of our cold cuts, salads, and amazing signature sandwiches, salads, and wraps!  You really can’t go wrong here.

Check Out our Fresh Salad

You really can’t go wrong bringing salad to a picnic and if you take a moment to browse our menu, you’re going to find that we have some amazing choices, including the Thai Chicken salad that brings shitake mushrooms, red onion, red pepper, basil, cucumbers, sesame seeds, toasted almond, lo mein noodles a top of summer mix with a spicy peanut dressing to tie it all together   Seriously, you can’t go wrong with that, unless you want to take it up a notch by going with the Summer salad which bring smoked turkey, Mandarin oranges, apples, red onion, crumbled Gorgonzola, candied pecans a top of summer mix with herb citrus dressing to the table, or picnic blanket.

There are ton of other salads to choose from on the menu and as one of the premiere  we’re more than happy to bring it to you. Check out the Greek, Chef, or other fresh salads, but make sure you’re leaving room for an entrée.

Sandwiches & Wraps  – The Ultimate Entrée

If you’re having trouble deciding what kind of sandwich or wrap  to bring with you on your picnic, may we suggest going the classic route? Take for example our classic sandwich – a delectable culinary achievement that affords you the opportunity to choose between corned beef, ham, turkey, seasoned chicken, or even roast beef. This is a sandwich of your design and comes with all of the trappings including cheese, tomato, mayo, lettuce on the bread or wrap of your choice.

If that doesn’t seem to be quite your speed, then don’t forget to try the Crispers ALT, which features avocado as the star of the show. Against a backdrop of mayo, cheddar, lettuce and tomato, the ALT really does bring excellence to the picnic, and honestly, avocado is a superfood – you should have it in your diet anyway!

Don’t Forget Dessert

Cookies - CripsersWe would be remiss if we didn’t recommend taking a good dessert along with you and we’re aiming to deliver – literally. would not recommend promoting milk shakes or items with ice cream.

Instead we could say: We offer a variety of large cookies as well as our signature nibbler, bite size cookies baked fresh every day. Included in our nibbler platters we have brownies and Crispers Crispie treats that are handmade each morning.

You can either pick up your Spring feast, or you can ask us to, either way, Spring is an amazing time for a picnic, and it’s about time you ate some healthy food. After all, it pays to get the year started off right, doesn’t it?
