Warmer weather means it’s time for a picnic! Here are some ideas for what to pack in your basket and head off to the beach, meadow, woods, park….
Sometimes you just gotta be a kid again and have an old favorite!
Grate, add pistachios and/or dress with a little lemon, olive oil & parsley. For added flavor, crumble some goat cheese or bleu cheese.
HUMMUS, TABOULI & PITA
Slice up some pita bread & enjoy dipping it in a tub of hummus w/a little tabouli! I grew up on this snack, so I can attest to just how good it is…
COLD PEANUT NOODLES
BAGUETTE & ASSORTED CHEESES
Get a fresh loaf of bread from your local bakery & an assortment of artisan cheeses. Throw some grapes and/or olives in your basket, too…and a bottle of wine…
BAD IDEAS:-Ice cream…um duh…
-Fried chicken…hello sogginess!
-If it’s going to sit in a hot basket for a while, then anything with mayo is a bad idea!
-Chocolate…sorry chocahaulics it’ll just melt on a hot day!
