Spring and summer are great seasons to enjoy a lunch outdoors. For instance in a park, or simply on your balcony or in your backyard. I’ve selected kawaii recipes for picnic treats that might make you feel like being in Japan.
Brighten your day with this cute Strawberry Sando (Japanese Fruit Sandwich), made with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. You can follow the simple recipe from @Cookerru, or the more detailed recipe with pictures from Just One Cookbook.
On the Surf and Sunshine blog you can find a recipe for these kawaii crab filled onigiri. I can highly recommend an onigiri mould as used in the recipe, but you can also place plastic wrap around the rice to shape it with your hands.
How cute is this Totoro inari sushi from ‘I am a food blog’? If you are planning to bring these Totoro to a picnic, make sure to pack them well.
I’m very fascinated by these rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches. Living the Gourmet blog shows how to make the rainbow sandwiches, cut in half. But you can also leave the rainbow cheese uncut, so it can stretch out, as explained in this video by Mr. Q.
A picnic wouldn’t be complete without fruit or veggies, for some much needed vitamins. I think these rainbow fruit skewers from Clean Food would be a very kawaii choice!
