July is National Picnic Month

When is the last time you went on a real, old- fashioned picnic? I'm talking neatly packed picnic basket, savory gourmet treats, a bottle of wine or other concoction. And some decadent little morsel that makes you feel like a French princess. And the setting ... A sailboat? A beach? A greasy knoll?

There is still time. Resolve to have that picnic during National Picnic Month! To get you motivated here are six picnic sandwich recipes that would perfect your picnic basket.  Click on the link below the pictures for the recipes.  Or better yet, head over to our Pinterest Board to find all these recipes and more.
