One of the things my family likes to do is head out to the nature trails at the state park to go on little hikes or bike rides. Before our journey, we like to pack a picnic lunch to give us the fuel we need to endure some of those tough trails. A few years back, we somehow wondered from the short footpath trail onto the bike trail, and ended up on a 5 mile trek over rough and rugged terrain. It was brutal! Thankfully, we had full bellies before heading out, because we didn't have to hear the kids complain about starving to death in the woods.
As soon as the rain lets up here, we are really looking forward to our first hike of the summer. And, of course, our traditional picnic before heading out. I like to pack light foods that aren't going to weigh the belly down. Chicken or turkey, fruits and veggies. That sort of thing. I've been trying to find new sandwich recipes to add to my picnic collection for these outings, and really liked the looks of this Greek Chicken Sandwich from Golden Blossom Honey.
It's a great sandwich for your picnic or for a quick, late night dinner. I served ours with some caramelized onions, and it was oh, so yum!
