It seems that spring is finally here! If you are one of those people who love to be outdoors, you will quickly be tempted to have a picnic with friends after taking a peek at this recipe. (And if you prefer to eat indoors, you can use the traditional picnic as inspiration.)
In either case, I would recommend having your ingredients and tools ready, so that you never miss an opportunity to grab your pail and go. Realizing that you forgot your cork screw as you attempt to open a bottle of wine in the middle of the park or at the beach is not a fun way to start your day. So, as the season rolls in, pack the following in a small basket: reusable melamine plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery; a cork screw; a water canteen; eco-friendly napkins; and a large blanket.
Inspired by the season’s picnics, I have prepared these easy vegetarian sandwiches for your outdoor eating pleasure. Grilling the vegetables brings a smoky, sweet, and unique flavor to these simple sandwiches. And you don’t need a lot of prep time to put them together. Make sure to use quality ingredients when pulling together your vegetables, and you’re set to go!
