We often think of salads and sandwiches when we think of picnic food. However, in the stakes of portable food that makes a statement, there is nothing more worthy of our alfresco attention than picnic finger food.
Bundle up assorted tasty morsels for a delightfully easy-to-manage picnic feast.
One of the great joys of finger food at a picnic is its manageability. Forget cutlery and balancing plates on laps. Plates may be required, maybe not. Perhaps a simple napkin on the lap and a serviette will suffice.
But here in lies the beauty of a spread of assorted appetizers and snacks for a wonderful sharing meal without any fuss or mess.
