Picnic recipes perfect for Earth Day

Enjoy the outdoors on Earth Day (Sunday, April 22) and pack a picnic for CSU's Oxbow Meadows. The celebration starts at 6 p.m. and when the sun sets, short environmental films will be shown on an outdoor screen.

Here are a few picnic recipes:

Strawberry Spinach Salad

1 pound baby spinach

1 pint strawberries, sliced

1 pint blueberries

2 kiwifruits, sliced

1/2 cup pecans


1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

3/4 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons poppy seeds

Combine dressing ingredients and shake well. Toss salad ingredients and garnish with a few sliced strawberries. Serve immediately.

1 cup hummus

1/2 cup cucumber

1/2 cup diced tomato

1/2 cup bell pepper

1/2 cup shoestring carrots

Shredded lettuce

Spread hummus on each tortilla and split vegetables evenly among each tortilla. Roll up, slice in half and wrap in plastic wrap.
