Even if you're not getting your blanket out, there are so many picturesque places across the country that have picnic benches on their look out spots. Head to your local lavender fields, head up to the top of your local hills to watch the sun go down or head to the beach for a meal by the sea.
My bulgar wheat salad (which I've done a recent recipe post on!) is a favourite at the moment as it's so light and refreshing, plus it goes with a variety of other things too including rosemary and sea salt focaccia and olives. I've also been loving whipping up some easy spicy potatoes by simply chopping them up into cubes, putting them in boiling water til they soften and then frying them lightly in a pan until crisp - they serve amazingly well with moorish humous too. Any form of pastry is always a good idea whether it's flakey vegetarian sausage rolls or delicious tarts.
Scones and fresh fruit are always a lovely idea too especially as they're on the right side of sweet. Watermelon, fresh raspberry jam and strawberries are three of my favourites.
Flapjacks always go down a treat on a picnic and they're pretty easy to transport too as does any form of cupcake. Grab yourself some delicious Pimm's, pink lemonade or elderflower cordial for a light refreshment.
