just a few ideas…
…on how to build the best picnic ever.
the best part: everything here can be made or prepped ahead of time, and will probably even be better after a night in the fridge. just assemble when you’re ready to eat. then lie in the sun, devour, sip, read, snooze, repeat.
(all the ideas pictured above, from top:)
speaking of olives, a bagna cauda is just the dip for crunchy, raw, market vegetables
and do not overlook quiche, easy to transport, great at room temp, delicious with endless options
a strawberry salsa screams summer
the best chips–a picnic must
goodgreat bread and cheese (file under simple is best)
leek chips that no one will be able to resist
a sweet, herb-scented cocktail like tequila with tarragon
sweet, ripe mango–spiked with cayenne!
the perfect picnic drink? a strawberry soda, while you still can
avocados smashed on grilled bread couldn’t be easier
nor could hummous, even made from scratch
and i know you know a thing or two about eating on blankets in the sun, so tell me what you’re making and taking! (pictures and links welcome too.)
happy canada day & happy fourth to all of you! safe holidays.
