With so many recipes for a picnic, we decided it would be the ideal theme for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). We put the Culinary Content Network and our staff to the test to come up with bacon recipes and here are some of the highlights:

Lori Yates of Foxes Love Lemons shared with us her recipe for an easy-to-pack white bean salad in a mason jar.

Peter Block of Feed Your Soul Too made a healthy potato salad with Greek yogurt instead of the traditional mayonnaise.

The winner this week is Haley Willard, the Assistant Editor at The Daily Meal, who made a chicken sandwich complete with creamy avocado spread. What could be better for a picnic?

All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
