During the summer my family and I like to go out to our local lake and have picnics. We usually take an assortment of food with us, including sandwiches, salads and snacks. Libby’s canned fruits and vegetables definitely make summer recipes much easier to make! I hope that you enjoy the recipe below and share some of your favorite picnic foods with us.
