National Picnic Day
Whether you’ve lived in San Diego for decades or are visiting for the first time, it’s no secret San Diego is filled with iconic spots for a picnic…and a picnic to celebrate National Picnic Day this Sunday, April 23. Pacific Beach’s Kate Sessions Park, Point Loma’s Sunset Cliffs, and Coronado’s Centennial Park are all places to catch stunning views with friends or that special someone. And what’s a picnic in the San Diego sun without snacks? (Temperatures expected to be in the 70s this weekend!)
Chula Vista-based saucy sisters Darlene, Diane, and Daphne recently created Sistry Foods, a line of three versatile sauces made to accompany an array of snacks at any picnic. Available in three flavors (Chili Chipotle, Ranch, and Jalapeno Cilantro), these sauces are dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and Keto and Whole30 diet friendly. Perfect for dunking, dipping, and alley-ooping, bring along your new favorite sauce and your favorite veggies, chips, and crackers to your favorite picnic spot to ring in picnic season.
Looking to step up your picnic game? Pick out one of the dozens of hand-crafted recipes created by the sisters themselves and prepare your picnic grub at home. Their creations include the Tunacado, Vegan Ceviche, and Jalapeno Cilantro Slaw.
With National Picnic Day and another beautiful weekend on the horizon, you’ll want Sistry Foods in your pantry ready for a deliciously healthy meal. Sauces are sold at the Sprouts locations in Chula Vista and Eastlake, the Little Italy Farmer’s Market on Saturdays (at least one of the sisters is there every time), Harvest Ranch Market in Encinitas, and Farm Stand 67 in Ramona.
