Picnic Day

Today being Picnic Day, I think of sharing a simple meal in a wonderful location. A picnic can be in a park, at the beach or even on your patio. Fried chicken and potato salad (see recipe below) may be what I would make if I were to plan a picnic. It would also be great to have a little something extra like some cut fruit or in this case some garlicky pickled veggies. Here are just a couple of pictures of our picnic.

For a simple and tasty potato salad try this recipe: Dill Pickle Potato Salad

3 med. Potatoes
3 Tbsp. Diced green onion
1 small stick celery
3 Tbsp. Dill pickles
¼ c. mayonnaise
½ tsp. Mustard
2 ¼ oz. Can diced black olives

Cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces (peeling is optional). Cook the potatoes until barely soft. Place under cold water to cool.

While potatoes are cooking, chop the green onions, celery, and pickles and place in a bowl.

Mix mayonnaise and mustard in a large bowl. Add cooled potatoes and the vegetables, mix well. Gently stir in the olives.
