Easy Picnic Menu

Easy Picnic Menu
What's the key to a perfect picnic? Delicious food that's easy to prepare and transport—and our menu fits the bill. Everything can be made in advance, and many of the dishes taste even better after the flavors have had time to marry.

To appease hungry appetites when you arrive at the picnic site, set out bowls of Middle Eastern-style hummus with wedges of pita bread for dipping. Then serve the sandwiches, including a hearty Italian hero packed with meats and cheese. Round out the menu with seasonal salads, such as couscous laced with cherry tomatoes and roasted bell peppers. For dessert, offer blackberry-almond bars and rich chocolate brownies. They can be cut into squares before you leave home, so serving (and cleanup) is a breeze.
