The magic of a memorable picnic lies in the culinary selection. After all, Mother Nature’s already taken care of the decorations.
Start with a few easy ingredients that can be snacked on a la carte, turned into a light, summer salad, or stacked into a sandwich. Our go-to spread consists of well-documented crowd-pleasers: Arugula, sliced peaches, thinly sliced prosciutto, a thick wedge of brie, and few freshly baked baguettes.
Pack these delectables in a roomy basket, grab a large, lightweight blanket, and slip into your favorite sandals to be on your way. Our Brias are perfect for stretching out underneath a shady tree and watching the world, in a comfortable bliss.
To prep for our guests, we toss the peaches and greens in a bowl, slice the baguettes in half, and arrange the charcuterie and cheese on a cutting board, with a jar of honey on the side for a sweet spread of flavor. A quick vinaigrette can dress your salad, or even the sandwiches. See below for our favorite recipe.
Pro Tip: Bring a few candles along, so the fun can carry on well into the evening.
