Summer should not pass by without at least one meal eaten outdoors. Picnics are a celebration of our summer spirit, culinary diversity, and the taste for the great outdoors. Planned or impromptu, picnics have a personal touch – we choose the foods we serve, select our picnic partners, and seek out the perfect venue. They are a perfect avenue to share and express our culture, gastronomic favorites, and fond memories of childhood.

Try the tasty treat below so you’ll be ready for your next outdoor outing:

Honey-Mustard Peanut, Apple and Pepper Slaw

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds removed, julienne strips
