Welcome to the Picnic Game 2013! Hold on, wait a minute…
Before you spread out your blanket and start fixing your plate, let’s give credit where credit is due. Many thanks to our event coordinator and hostess supreme, Louise of Months of Edible Celebrations. Be sure to visit her, and all of the other food-fixin’ bloggers.
Now, let’s get started.
I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing…
I was inspired by Budget Gourmet Mom’s Cucumber, Blueberry and Mint Salsa recipe, but since I had the letter “B” for the picnic game, I needed to rename it. And since we don’t stock agave nectar, the substitutions began.
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup English cucumber, chopped (blueberry sized pieces?)
1/2 tablespoon local blueberry honey
1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
3 roughly chopped mint leaves
Toss berries and cucumber. Drizzle honey and lime juice on top, then gently fold in mint. Serve with whatever you have in the pantry that suits you.
Sissy and Gg had Pretzel Crisps. (No corn) I had regular Wheat Thins. I liked the Wheat Thins better. It would be great to tote to any picnic or poolside, or even on a hike, as nothing in the dish is particularly perishable. As Louise was kind enough to invite the fur-girls, I wanted to bring something they could eat and their human friends might enjoy too. The Knight wouldn’t try it, but he doesn’t like blueberries or honey very much, so… he got a pass this time.
