Celebrate Summer With These Classic Picnic Recipes
Our idea of a perfect picnic is a mix of classic dishes with new flavor twists and textures.
Tahini Swirl Brownies
Make sure you stir the tahini well before scooping it from the jar to incorporate the oil. For a little crunch, sprinkle the top of the batter with black and white sesame seeds before you pop it in the oven.
If you prefer a spicier lemonade, steep for longer than 30 minutes. Serve the strained ginger and chili flakes in a small bowl as a garnish alongside the lemonade.
For this recipe, use avocados that are fully ripe (there should be some give when you squeeze them).
Cabbage Slaw With Lime Vinaigrette
This vinaigrette is intense on its own but finds perfect balance when tossed with cabbage. Be generous with your salt; the slaw can handle quite a bit.
