Time at the beach is very important. During a few months of the year, it’s easy to get sand everywhere. Also, it is important to have a beach party when the weather is right. And if you have a beach party this summer, you’ll want to serve your guests some cute snacks. You need energy, but you don’t want to feel sick or bloated after you eat.
So, here are some great food ideas for a beach party that will make it one to remember! You can go to the beach without leaving your chair if you look at these tasty ideas for beach party food.
15 Ideas for Food to Serve at a Beach Party
If you try these food ideas and the favourites of your friends and family, you can spend more time swimming and less time thinking about what to eat next.
1) Salad of chicken and pasta
This pasta salad is full of different tastes and is great for picnics and trips to the beach. Using a mustard vinaigrette instead of mayonnaise makes the salad lighter, and adding seared chicken and crispy bacon makes it filling enough to be the main dish.
So make sure to serve this tasty pasta salad at your beach party.
2) Fruit Salad
Fruit salad is the perfect dessert for a day at the beach, and you may not even think you need a recipe. But, trust us, you do. Here, sweet, syrupy honey, fresh, sour orange juice, and bright lemon zest combine to make your fruit taste even better, even if it’s not in season.
3) Fried Chicken
Fried chicken is something that almost everyone likes. You can eat it hot or cold, and if you do it on the beach, you won’t even need utensils because it’s so easy to handle.
4) Corn on the cob that was grilled
At a beachside restaurant, corn on the cob is the perfect side dish for any main dish. You can keep it simple by only using butter, or you can add some of your favourite herbs and spices to make it taste better.
5) Ham & Cheese Sandwich
A ham and cheese sandwich is a common and tasty idea for a beach party snack. There are many reasons why this ham sandwich is tasty.
It has a beautiful golden crust from the mayonnaise, a quick and easy honey mustard sauce, and crunchy pickles that taste salty. It’s an old favourite that won’t make you think too hard but will keep you going all day.
6) Chicken tenders
Tenders are a great choice for families with young children because they can be eaten on their own or wrapped in a tortilla with vegetables and sauce to make a chicken tender wrap. Put in an order at your local grocery store so you can spend more time in the sun instead of working hard in the kitchen.
Hot dogs are a good food to bring to the beach. They don’t take much work to make and can be eaten with your hands. You can make them as fancy or simple as you want by adding the condiments and sauces you like best, such as relish, fresh onion, mustard, ketchup, and barbeque sauce.
8) Salsa and chips made of corn
Get some tortilla chips and salsa if you want a snack that packs a punch. You can choose from mild to very hot flavours, depending on how spicy you like your food.
Do sweets sound good to your sweetheart? Pick up a small piece of your favourite flavour of cheesecake, or if you’re in the mood for something fancier, get a tray with a bunch of different kinds on it so you can try them all.
10) Sesame Noodles
The sauce that comes with these noodles is out of this world good. A good tip is to save one cup of the water used to cook the noodles for the sauce. The starches in that water will be important for making a sauce that goes with your peanut noodles that is smooth and silky but also a little bit sticky.
11) Prosecco Grapes
This is one of the interesting food ideas for a beach party. One of our favourite beach snacks to bring is grapes, especially ones that are cold and sweet. So, why not give them a new look for the season?
We like to make Prosecco grapesicles by soaking grapes in vodka and Prosecco for a short time and then freezing them on skewers. You can also add alcohol to the grapes by letting them soak in the two alcoholic drinks.
12) Hard Boiled Eggs
This could be one of the least expensive foods to ship. In case of an unexpected sandstorm, hard-boiled eggs are easy to make, fill, and clean up. They are also tasty and can be served warm or cold if there isn’t enough space for a cooler. Just peel them before you go to the beach. It’s too hard to do it there.
13) Brownies with chocolate
If you’re at the beach and want something sweet, brownies are one of the best ways to satisfy that craving. Since they’re cooked all the way through, they won’t melt like other chocolatey treats, and you don’t have to keep them in the fridge if you don’t have room there.
When served with a dip that can handle the heat, such as hummus, carrot sticks and cucumber spears make for a crisp and refreshing snack. Just put them in a strong plastic container so they won’t get crushed when you store them.
15) Snack of Everything
This trail mix shows that sesame seeds, dried onion, poppy seeds, dried garlic, and salt can be mixed in any way to make something magical. It’s crunchy, and, to be honest, it’s hard to stop eating because it has a great mix of pretzels, Goldfish, toasted rice cereal squares, and white cheddar crackers.
