Ideas for picnic recipes

It’s time for al fresco dining, soaking up the sun and lovely picnics. Here are three delicious little dishes that are easy to pack along with a bottle of lemonade and a few games. The aim is to make practical dishes that don’t require much preparation when you arrive.

BRUSCHETTA WITH STRAWBERRIES AND CASTELLO DOUBLE CRÈME WHITE CHEESE

Try your hand at a bruschetta with strawberries and Castello Double Crème White Cheese. Strawberries are generally associated with dessert, but they also go very well with the flavor and texture of creamy white cheese. If you have some ham or tomatoes, bring them along, too, and you'll practically have a bruschetta buffet.

PIEROGIS WITH SALMON, SPINACH AND CASTELLO DOUBLE CRÈME BLUE CHEESE

Baked goods always make a lovely addition to a picnic. While a tart would be a great choice, baked pierogis also make for a perfect finger food. Substitute the smoked salmon with chicken or ham, if you don’t fancy fish. Or try making a vegetarian version with sautéed mushrooms and spinach.

COARSE SALAD TO-GO WITH CASTELLO EXTRA MATURE CHEDDAR CHEESE

The salad adds some crispy freshness to your picnic spread. Choose coarser veggies that can be transported in a container without becoming damaged. Also be sure to pack all ingredients separately as herbs tend to wilt quickly once they’ve been coated in dressing. Castello Extra Mature Cheddar cheese adds a lovely depth to the salad with its strong flavor and crumbly texture. This salad also works well as a packed lunch.
