Picnic tapas

Whether you’re headed to an outdoor concert, a garden party, or just the park, this is prime picnic time. Think beyond cheese plates and PB&Js with this tapas-style grazing menu of recipes from a few of our favorite local chefs.

They’re all easy to pack. They all keep well. Guacamole, bruschetta, and broccoli and chicken salads are all crowd-pleasers; the surprise of a marinated squid (or shrimp) salad makes it a meal to remember. So does a pitcher of sangria and a plateful of tartlets piled high with blueberries. This is one eclectic feast that offers something for everyone – which is what summertime picnicking is all about, right?
