African and Middle Eastern Inspired Easter Picnic Ideas

by Ryan

In Egypt, they celebrate Sham el-Nessim, a national holiday marking the beginning of spring. It always falls on the day after the Eastern Christian Easter – the festival is not religious and is celebrated by all Egyptians regardless of their faith. On that Monday, people tend to color boiled eggs first thing in the morning before going on picnics in any space of green, public gardens, on the Nile, or at the zoo.

So we thought it might be fun to pull recipes together that will make the perfect African/Middle Eastern picnic for your Easter afternoon celebrations.
