Photo by Elyssa Goodman
Your date is one in a million, and they deserve more than any old picnic. You wouldn't settle for your sweetie, so why settle for egg salad when you could have so much more? With enticing fresh markets popping up everywhere as we head into summer, try some locally grown or gourmet products to make your picnic that much more special. Go for goat cheese instead of cream cheese, pear-apple wine instead of beer, arugula instead of lettuce. For delicious local products, give some of these a shot: Eve's Cidery in Van Etten, New York; Allegheny Mountain HorseRadish Cheese from Pennsylvania Macaroni Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; or find your own products at the Nashville Farmer's Market in Nashville, Tennesee.
And for a delicious picnic treat, try these Prosciutto, Goat Cheese and Fig Sandwiches!
