Great Foods For a Picnic

By Stett Holbrook


PICNIC season is upon us. But what to bring? Wine and cheese are obvious. Here are five other treats to pack into your picnic basket.


Baguette A crusty loaf is a good loaf.


Cold Noodles Instead of an insipid pasta salad, go for some sesame-garlic noodles.


Grapes No peeling, no mess. Just pop in your mouth and eat.


Roast Chicken Cook a chicken the night before and break it down into manageable pieces for alfresco dining.


Salami So good, so easy. Don't forget the knife.
