Easy Memorial Day Picnic

This do-ahead picnic lunch is the perfect way to welcome summer with family and friends. To satisfy hungry guests as they arrive, offer skewers of fresh mozzarella cheese, tiny tomatoes and basil–our variation on the Italian caprese salad. Chilled cucumber-dill soup and shredded chicken salad can be made in advance and are easy to transport to your picnic site. For dessert, serve rich chocolate brownies laced with raspberry jam; they’re sure to please picnickers of all ages.
