Do you know what day it is? Today is actually International Picnic Day, and what could be better than to celebrate with a group of bloggers from the Sunday Supper family?  

We chose dishes that corresponded to a letter of the alphabet, made our dish, and added it to a big virtual picnic basket. This group sure knows how to have some fun! Drop by the Sunday Supper Movement to see the whole picnic spread out on our virtual blanket.

So, I’m going on a picnic with my friends today and want you to come along and enjoy all the delicious food!

Northern Bean SaladI’m bringing… Northern Bean Salad with Egg and Prosciutto that is just perfect for a picnic. The best part about it, is that the simple olive oil and lemon dressing mixed with the beans serves as a salad dressing. It can be added right before serving so that the lettuce doesn’t get mushy!

A lovely salad! Smiling because I know how much you like prosciutto. I need to put this in my next recipe!

Simplicity and fresh ingredients truly feels like good eating. And greens, olive oil and eggs are all healthy gifts we give to our family, yes?
