Thisglass noodle saladwith asparagus and bell peppers is a great dish to enjoy cold or warm. The Asian dressing makes it absolutely addictive.
Anheirloom tomato salad dressed in yuba, shiso and ponzu is another good picnic option. Slice the tomatoes at home and pack the dressing in a separate container. This way you can mix it all together right before serving to avoid soggy tomatoes.
If you'd like to serve a salad in a cup, this picturesque celeriac, cheese and walnut salad is your best bet. All of the ingredients are stacked so it makes for a stunning presentation and easier to carry around.
What we love about this rocket, tomato and omelette baguette sandwich is how easy it is to make (and devour). The great thing about omelettes is that they can be consumed at room temperature. We recommend packing the ingredients separately then buidling your baguette sandwiches on site.
For dessert, don't forget to pack something fun like these chocolate whoopie pies. They are easy to carry and you won't have to worry about utensils for dessert.
