Cheap & Healthy Picnic Dish

One of the things I love about summer is all the picnics. But if you have to bring a dish to every picnic, it can get kind of expensive. I decided I wanted to bring a fruit tray to one of our picnics. I was blown away that Giant wanted over $30 for one fruit tray! So, I bought some fruit and made my own.
I had a leftover veggie tray container from a party last year, so I filled it up with fruit that I bought from WalMart/Aldi.

 I made two fruit trays for $11.98. That means I saved over $35! So if you're looking for a healthy, cheap dish to bring to a picnic, consider making your own fruit tray!


  1. I make one on Sundays and keep in the fridge, it is a great way to eat more fruit. I also do a veggie trsy in the fridge for eating off of.

  2. I love fruit trays, especailly when they have blueberries in them.

    The other thing about bringing a fruit tray, you don't have to worry that someone will get sick because there is no place to keep it cold.

  3. What a great idea to reuse a veggie tray for a fruit tray! Nutritious and delicious!
