Summer should not pass by without at least one meal eaten outdoors. Picnics are a celebration of our summer spirit, culinary diversity, and the taste for the great outdoors. Planned or impromptu, picnics have a personal touch — we choose the foods we serve, select our picnic partners, and seek out the perfect venue. They are a perfect avenue to share and express our culture, gastronomic favorites, and fond memories of childhood. Try the tasty treat below so you’ll be ready for your next outdoor outing: Honey-Mustard Peanut, Apple and Pepper Slaw The perfect side dish on a warm summer day. Ingredients
