Planning a picnic doesn’t have to be complicated. All you need is a few simple ingredients, a glass of wine, and maybe a stop at the local ice cream shop on your way home.
My Favorite Picnic Dinner
Fresh cherry or grape tomatoes
Sliced cucumber (try English or mini Persians, which you don’t have to peel)
Mix of Greek olives
Hunk of good feta cheese
Fresh whole grain bread
Extra virgin olive oil, if desired (find tiny bottles at World Market)
Simply lay everything out and go to town making combinations. I love: chunk of bread + feta + cucumber, tomato with feta, olive + feta smashed onto bread, cucumber + tomato with feta in between.
