We are off to A Day On The Green in a couple of weeks and I am after some yummy picnic food ideas. We are unable to take knives etc in of course so things that can be precut. Don't mind cooking beforehand.

Mini quiches/tartlets home made
Popcorn, nuts and cheese platter with a few different kinds of crackers and dips.
Dried fruit pieces
Chocolate dipped strawberries
Cob loaf pre cut with the dip transported separately on the day and assembled at the venue....

Thx for the replies, off to search for a recipe for egg & bacon pie. Remembered I had a mini quiche recipe with a couple of different fillings. Will definitely be packing cheese & crackers.

Here's a list of some of my favourite picnic foods:
- individual meat pies
- quiche or frittata
- sandwiches and tortilla wraps
- salmon: cold cooked salmon or smoked
- cold buffalo wings
- cheese, crackers, bread
Devilled eggs are also a sure hit, as well as hummus and pita chips.

We had a picnic recently and our firends bought homemade rice paper rolls - with chicken or prawns and a sweet soy dipping sauce - oh my god they were devine and a nice 'fresh' option other than the standard quiche/cheese/dips etc.

Lucky you - Day On The Green events are my favourite
There's been lots of lovely food suggestions but, I would like to add one of my all time must haves for a picnic is a beautiful terrine. I particularly like chicken ones. You can serve with some really good crusty bread, good quality relish or chutney, Jarlsberg or Swiss cheese and cos lettuce.
I haven't made this exact recipe but, I've made similar chicken and pistachio terrines in the past. They're an absolute hit at picnics.
