Picnic meal planning is tricky: you don’t want your food to spoil, and you want to have a little something for everyone. Sandwiches make the perfect picnic food — they’re easy to assemble and require as few as four ingredients: bread, cheese, deli meat, and a condiment. Go classic with turkey and cheese on white bread, make pinwheels with any wrap you like, or create a sandwich with the leftover barbecue chicken from the cookout you attended a few days ago.

If you have leftover barbecue chicken at home from a recent dinner or cookout, why not turn it into a sandwich? Grab a hamburger bun and load up the bread with barbecue chicken, onions, and celery. The lack of cheese makes it perfect for your next picnic.

Club Sandwich

You don’t have to get too fancy for your picnic — if you’re out of sandwich ideas, make a classic. A club sandwich with turkey, ham, Swiss, lettuce, and tomatoes will make all of your friends happy.
