Take It Outside

You bet we love traditional picnic foods. Potato salad, hot dogs, brownies, lemonade and fried chicken – what's not to like? But we're challenging typical ideas of what a picnic is with three picnic menus that prove picnics can be easy, upscale and, yes, even healthy! Whether you're looking for more classic fare or are ready for a new twist, it's time to take the party outdoors!
