Romantic Picnic for Two Menu

Light bites to share al fresco with your significant other


There is no better way to say I love you this summer than by surprising your significant other with a simple picnic dinner at sunset. Pick a spot that is meaningful to you — maybe it's at the crest of a hill in your favorite park, or on a giant rock on the beach overlooking the ocean. Stock a basket or bag with the essentials (read up on what we think are the coolest accessories to have this year), then pack up the dishes below. The recipes below are perfect for sharing, including a slice (or two) of a carrot cake for dessert. Just don’t forget to grab that bottle of wine chilling in the fridge.
