1. Southwestern Grilled Sweet Potato Salad
This potato salad by Audrey’s Apron requires a little bit of prep ahead of time for the sweet potatoes, but it’s totally worth it. Enjoy this potato salad your first day of camping to help give you the energy you need to collect wood for your evening fire.
2. Smoked Corn, Red Quinoa, and Black Bean Salad
Anything smoked is great to eat while camping! Chock-full of all your macronutrients, this salad from FMITK requires no refrigeration or heating up. The author gives you a few options to prepare it, so choose whichever one works best for you.
3. Spring Greek Lentil Salad
This salad from Vegetarian Times is refreshing and gets better the longer it sits. I’ve taken this recipe along with me when I’ve gone camping and it never fails to satisfy everyone’s stomach. The flavor from the dill and texture of the lentils makes this salad a hit.
What kind of camping experience is it without dips? Dips are light enough for snacking throughout the day without leaving you feeling like you need a siesta, are portable, and are easy to store in the cooler for when you’re in the mood to nibble on something, but don’t want a big meal.
4. Kalamata White Bean Spread
This bean spread by Gourmandelle is so delicious! I absolutely love the taste of za’atar! If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend giving your taste buds a new experience. Pair this with pita, vegetables, or your favorite crackers.
5. Spinach and Feta Hummus
If you’ve never tried hummus made from spinach, then please go make this recipe from FMITK immediately! If you’re vegan, Holly—the mastermind behind this fabulous hummus—suggests substituting the feta with pressed extra firm tofu or use Soy Feta cheese (you can find Soy Feta at your local health food store).
