Picnic Dinner

Miss Yunks wanted to prepare a simple picnic dinner to eat on Boston Common before seeing Shakespeare on the Common.

I immediately thought of pasta – pasta is easy and transports well!  I went to Whole Foods for a treat and picked up some delicious picnic ingredients.

Ricotta ravioli, fresh mozzarella, and the most perfect looking tomatoes I’ve ever seen.

The packaging totally sold me!  Backyard Farms vine ripened tomatoes – adorable and delicious.  I sliced the mozzarella balls and tomatoes and tossed them with balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.  I sliced a loaf of french bread.  On the picnic blanket we topped the bread with the balsamic marinated mozzarella and tomatoes.  Such an easy, nutritious and delicious picnic food – we ate it all up.

The tomatoes are beautiful on the inside too – where it matters most :) I’m not even a tomato person but I would definitely buy these again.  I’m so much of not a tomato person that I scoop out the goopy seeds in the middle and only eat the firm outer part.  I’ve seen these Backyard Farms tomatoes in other grocery stores too so they are not limited to Whole Foods, but they certainly are special!

What’s your favorite meal to eat for a picnic?

    I think your salad sounds perfect for a picnic! I’d have to choose something with similar ingredients like a tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich!
