The weather outside is beautiful and begging to be enjoyed. Embrace the outdoors by having a picnic with your loved ones; what better way is there to get vitamin D and serotonin pumping in your body?

Here are five deliciously easy recipes:

Seven-layer dip

As in the name, this recipe only requires seven ingredients, not including spices and seasonings. Layering in order, start off with refried beans mixed with taco seasoning, sour cream, guacamole,

salsa, lettuce, shredded cheese, sliced olives and tomatoes. Once you’re finished adding the ingredients and seasonings to your liking, grab tortilla chips, or any chip of your choice, and dig in.

Chive potato salad

If your favorite vegetable is potatoes, this quick and easy recipe is for you. Boil potatoes in salt water until cooked. After you’ve cut the cooked potatoes into quarters, blend chopped chives, olive oil, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, chopped parsley, salt and pepper. Mix everything together and you’re good to go.

Caprese sandwich

Grab a loaf of French bread and add tomato, mozzarella and parsley pesto. Toast the sandwich or leave as is and enjoy a mouthful of heaven. It only takes 10 minutes.

Raspberry tart

Let the sweetness of this raspberry tart dance on your taste buds and awaken your senses. Throw a sheet of puff pastry into the oven for 15 minutes. While the pastry is in the oven, mix heavy cream and sugar together until is at the consistency you like. After the pastry is cooled, spread the cream evenly and place the raspberry’s on top. Voila.

Antipasto skewers

Skewer/kabob lovers, this one is for you. All you need is olives, grape tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, artichoke hearts, cheese tortellini and whatever meat you prefer. On a wooden skewer, place your vegetables, cheeses and meat(s) in the order you’d like and top with an Italian dressing or tabasco sauce.

The best part of this recipe is that it is versatile and can work with any vegetable, meat, sauce and seasonings you’d like.
