Remember that picnic essentials board I put together a few weeks back?  Well here’s the real life incarnation of it!  There are a few minor changes, but it’s close and just as tasty as I imagined it would be!  After the jump I’ve got details on all that we ate, including a recipe for a lentil salad that is TO DIE FOR.  Happy Spring picnic-ing everyone!

Here are the components of this picnic:  a baguette with roasted garlic hummus, a lentil salad, sweet potato gnocchi with pesto, an arugula salad with preserved lemons, dried fruits, nuts and San Pellegrino sparkling water.  Simple, delicious, wholesome food that tastes even better when eaten outdoors!  We packed it all in these amazing bento boxes and loaded it all into this darling picnic basket.  I opted to bring these enamel plates instead of the compostable plates for an even more planet friendly picnic!

Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a great weekend!  With Spring upon us all I can think about is the fun that lays ahead these next months.  I’m daydreaming about lazy beach days, picnics in the park, long summer nights.  I’m also really looking forward to saying hello to a whole new bunch of produce!  I love winter vegetables so much but the change will be refreshing, right?  Today I’ve put together my picnic essentials, all the little things that make a picnic feel extra fun.  And in a couple of weeks I’ll show you this picnic brought to life, with recipes for the yummy food that goes with it.  I may even have a go at a vegan cheese recipe!  Hope you love!  xx- Sarah
