    Picnic foods?

    Any recommendations for good items to take for a picnic dinner?

    Bacon-wrapped dates! Easy to cook up, travel well, delicious hot or cold. Damn it, now I really want some right now...

    Smoked salmon, caviar, salad ingredients with lettuce as the star ... and Champagne. It's that easy. Oh, boiled eggs.









    Our 10th Anniversary. Out for a great evening walk, enjoying the summer sun and sunset ... and a banging picnic.

    I'll tell you what I'm bringing to the picnic I'm going on tomorrow: skewers of sausage, roast peppers, and sweet onion; deviled eggs (homemade mayo); and lemon blueberry scones (recipe from elanaspantry)

    P.S. That salmon and caviar looks amazing.

    Big @$$ salads are easy to take if you have a big bowl with a lid

    fresh fruit & goat cheese for dessert!

    I love doing crudité. Too often it's a bag of baby carrots and a tub of ranch-flavored soybean oil...

    My version:
    radish quarters, cucumber (zebra peel, diagonal cut), snap peas, green beans, grape tomatoes, celery, proper carrot sticks

    dips:
    guacamole
    tapenade
    mascarpone w/ cayenne sauce and red pepper flakes
    tahini w/ garlic and lemon juice

    I cannot cook where we'll be picnicking. I'll be walking nearly a mile, but I plan to put the food in a little rolling cooler that I can pull along.

    Thanks for all of the ideas so far - and the fabulous photos!

    For something flashy, try making a layered "scotch egg" with different meats and seasonings and all wrapped and baked in bacon.
