In addition to the savory, it is also nice to have something sweet in the nice weather. The making of a Fruit Salad with summer fruits such as strawberries, grapes and blueberries is a good choice. If you don't like fruit, a vegetable skewer is a good option. If all this is too healthy, you can choose to have a cupcake or cake to bring along.
