We've had picnic dinners a few times this summer. I love to picnic, especially when we can go to the park and hear free music to enjoy while we dine. I love getting creative with what we're going to eat, and I don't typically go simple. It's too fun not to.
Recently I took some mini cube sandwiches with chicken breast, sliced cheddar and southwest lime ranch dressing on pumpernickel bread (wheat for the girls). I made regular sandwiches, but then cut into 4's and put them on toothpicks so they were small pick-me-up sandwich bites.
To go with it, I chose fresh raspberries and kiwi wedges for fruit, and a simple black bean salad that I whipped up with some stuff from the garden. Hope you'll try this simple recipe.
Black Bean Salad
1 can black beans, drained
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, snipped
2 small Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
Juice of 1/2 lime
Mix together and refrigerate or pack in cooler until ready to eat!
