Picture this: You and a group of friends sitting on a blanket. You're on the beach -- or in a park if you prefer. You're laughing, talking, playing cards or catch. You're shading your eyes from the bright and warm sun as you read a book. And then there's food, packed away in tupperware, to be served with plastic forks and knives, or better yet, eaten with your hands. Here are 9 dishes, sweet and savory alike, that are portable and fresh and delicious, perfect to take with you on your summer picnics.
