Pack a Picnic

You only need a few things to make a picnic memorable: sunshine, good company, and a cooler full of your favorite foods.




Planning the Menu in Four Easy Steps

1. Keep things simple by limiting beverages to one or two choices (iced tea, lemonade.) Bring along vodka or a mixer for adults to add to beverages.


2. Make up one or two side salads. Go with old favorites or try salads that add a few fun flavor twists to the traditional recipe.


3. Include at least one main dish salad with meat or fish. Or offer a meat dish (cold fried chicken, luncheon meats) on the side instead.


4. Make low-fuss one-dish desserts. Even when they call themselves salads, these offerings can satisfy any sweet tooth.
