Summertime Picnics Have Never Been Easier

The beauty of a picnic? It’s no muss, no fuss. Pack a basket, spread a blanket and you’re in business. Whether you’re dining in your backyard or venturing to a park, here are a few tasty finger-foods that can elevate your al fresco menu and keep you from sweating over a hot stove.

Balsamic Cucumber Mini Shell Canapes

Cool off with a crisp cucumber appetizer. Balsamic vinegar, red onion, and dill combine to create an easy, tangy marinade. These mini shell canapes will add a flaky crunch to the beginning of your meal.



Lobster Roll Phyllo Bites

Stretch an expensive ingredient further with a phyllo twist on the classic lobster roll. By using our bite-sized shells, everyone gets a taste of something rich. The prep is as simple as combining lobster, tarragon, and mayonnaise. For maximum crunch, pack your salad and shells separately, and then spoon the filling on site.


Wild Blueberry Lemon & Thyme Phyllo Rolls

Complete your meal with the taste of summertime sweetness. This fruity dessert is packed with zesty citrus and wild blueberry. Our lemon and thyme glaze adds a brightness to the dish that will make you want to postpone packing up.
