When the weather is nice and the days are long, I can’t think of anything more pleasant than a picnic. I often find myself packing a portable feast to accompany an outdoor movie or concert this time of year, but a picnic can be an activity all on its own. Talk about a quintessential way to spend a summer day…
Along with some fresh summer fruit, crudités, kettle-popped chips, and a beverage of choice, my picnics almost always include a selection of mini sandwiches. There’s a reason the sandwich is such a picnic staple, after all. It’s an easy-to-eat, quick-to-make finger food, and the flavor options are endless. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a cooking novice, a sandwich is pretty hard to mess up.
Today I’m sharing four of Team LC’s favorite sandwich recipes. While plain old PB&J will always be a classic, we decided to give our picnic sandwiches a bit of a gourmet twist. Check out these winning sandwich combos below…
