6 can’t miss picnic dishes

These six dishes, created by The Kitchens of General Mills, will make you the star of your summer potluck party.

We suggest doubling the recipes since they’re sure to go fast!


Salsa Guacamole

Salsa and guacamole are both great on their own, so why not put them together? This recipe layers homemade guacamole and an easy fire-roasted salsa for a dip you can’t resist!


Thai Chicken and Kale Chopped Salad

Most Thai chicken salads are strictly cabbage-based, but everyone in our kitchens really loved the contrast of the crunchy cabbage with the slightly softer, leafy kale. A spicy peanut dressing pulls the whole salad together.


German Chocolate Cake Chex Muddy Buddies

This German Chocolate Cake Muddy Buddies recipe has all the flavor of German chocolate cake. The recipe can be made quickly and is easier to tote to a picnic than the real thing!


Lemon-Ginger Icebox Cookie Cupcakes

These delicious “cupcakes” are actually made with cookies. When stacked between layers of whipped cream and then chilled, the cookies become cake-like. Fresh fruit adds a festive and colorful touch.


Mini S’mores Hand Pies

These mini hand pies take everything we love about s’mores –crunchy graham crackers, melty chocolate, ooey-gooey marshmallows – and put it into a handheld pie pocket that delivers a perfect taste of summer.
