I'm actually not a fan of outdoor picnics; I'm apt to spend more time looking at the insects that show up than actually enjoying the food. However, a glass of wine and some good cheese with a beautiful view and good company is always welcome.
Picnics feel nostalgic to me, and nostalgia feels like my mother. She was a terrible cook but excellent baker and could put together a wonderful picnic spread. Strawberry shortcake was something that we used to make together and sounds lovely for a summer picnic.
Gather what's ripe in the garden, a blanket, vintage milk glass vase for wildflowers, your straw hat, and some cool drinks and find a pretty field midsummer. If you're lucky, a red-winged blackbird will join you on the rustic fence while the sunflowers and morning glories bloom amongst the rustling corn.
Cool and crispy salad nestled on a classic red and white picnic tablecloth. Fresh-from-the-garden strawberries and basil, accented with creamy mozzarella and a crunch of walnuts, then drizzled with punchy balsamic and your best olive oil. Perfect fare to cool and freshen the palate on a warm summer afternoon!
The word 'Summer' always brings a smile on my face and reminds me of all the beautiful colors that look particularly brighter in this season. I came across this recipe of 'Rainbow Salad' on Instagram by Nandita Iyer, the author of 'The everyday healthy Vegetarian'. Rainbow Salad- The name was so apt, because this is exactly a big bowl of colors. Apart from being so nutritious, all the colors are extremely appealing to the eyes. When I saw the topic of Summer Salads, I immediately remembered Nandita's Salad. The salad is extremely customizable to what you have available in the kitchen and is super easy to make.
