We rounded up our favorite fall picnic food ideas, ideal for packing a picnic and heading to the park or simply enjoying in your own backyard. These recipes aren't just easy to make, they're also easy to pack up and carry in your picnic basket. All you'll need to bring along are a sturdy blanket, napkins, and forks–we specifically chose fall recipes that don't require a knife or spoon. 

Our fall recipes below include options for the entire family–like a vibrant carrot dip, a crunchy make-ahead broccoli salad, and a salty, satisfying antipasti sandwich–so you'll have an ideal menu for the seasonal activity. While you're at it, you may as well tack on a quintessential fall salad with apples and butternut squash, to-go pumpkin bars for the perfect fall dessert, and a thermos of hot spiked cider for a cozy picnic menu you'll enjoy eating no matter where you are.
