    Picnic skewers

    If someone asks me if I am ready for a picnic, I will say: “I was born ready”. There is just something magical in enjoying delicious food with your loved ones outside.

    For some of us picnics are seasonal and for others – they never stop. And even when it’s all about a good old barbie, you still need a simple starter to have with you that everyone will love.

    Starter ideas for picnic

    Some of the great picnic starters can be:

    • chips
    • veggies
    • crackers ‘n’ dips.

    But when you need to make something fancier – picnic skewers to the rescue!

    Interesting Fact

    Did you know that picnics became popular after the French Revolution in 1789 when royal parks were first opened to the public? Wow!

    Why are these skewers so good?

    Well, these skewers are fabulously easy to make and are absolute crowd pleasers. They have never disappointed me. That’s for one.

    Secondly, if you have a BBQ coming up and you are responsible for a starter, skewers with veggies, cheese and olives are a fabulous idea. That is because they can be made insanely quickly and will surprise every single one of your loved ones with their looks.

    Not to mention that these skewers beat the hunger like a boss!
