For a more upscale evening picnic, try a farro salad - there are several on food52. Most can be served room temperature and farro doesn't get hard like rice. We had an all veg picnic last week for the National Symphony on the lawn of the Capitol building. We did a farro "caprese" salad and threw in some arugula, brought some good bread, Cowgirl Creamery herb fromage blanc, and some white bean dip. Fruit and brownies for dessert.

I love to take tortilla wraps with me for lunch when I do a day of hiking. They travel well, are easy to eat for a picnic in the countryside, and offer a lot of flexibility. One of my favorite fillings these days is cooked quinoa tossed with diced roasted pepper, roasted cherry tomatoes, coarsely chopped artichoke hearts, 1 minced shallot, feta cheese and arugula. Just roll them up in a warmed tortilla, roll the whole thing up in a pretty napkin, add some grapes, cherries, or other fruit, some wedges of cheese, maybe some spiced chickpeas and you're good to go. Oh, and a nice bottole of wine or champagne :-) !

Baguette w/ pesto, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil leaves. Not sure if cheese if vegetarian?
