We spend many weekends in the Summer going down to our local beach with a picnic dinner. It is hard to come up with easy to make, easy to eat meals that travel well. On a recent evening, I was in charge of the main dish and couldn’t think of anything to make other than sandwiches. I figured I could wrap them in paper and we wouldn’t need plates or utensils. I made Ina Garten’s Chicken Salad with tarragon and celery. Talk about a simple recipe that packs lots of flavor and a little crunch! The recipe called for adding mayonnaise to the bread but I felt the salad was already dressed enough and am glad I didn’t add more to the bread. I changed up the spring mix to romaine for a little extra crunch and swapped out the multi grain bread for soft rolls. They were a huge hit! Luckily, I made extra and we enjoyed it the next day for lunch. Need other picnic ideas? Check out this post and this one for recipes.
