Living in the Northeast, I always make a point to spend as much time as possible outside when the weather is nice during the spring, summer and fall. And that means picnics!
I’m a total picnic fan and think there’s something magical about eating outside at the park, sitting on the grass, and taking in some sun. I get giddy packing up containers of food for Pete and I, and plan ahead to make things that will hold up well.
In my opinion, lettuce-based salads are out of the question because they get wilted way too quickly, but there are plenty of other salads that are perfect to take for a few hours outside. I’ve gathered up some of my favorites from the archives of Fifteen Spatulas, and also shared a few extras from some of my food blogging friends. Happy picnic-ing!
