    candaceshaw's Note:

    We've been interested in picnicking for a few years now; something about packing up a lunch and going somewhere green and lovely to eat it on a blanket on the grass feels so special and nice. We've got one of those picnic knapsacks, with all of the cutlery and everything, which we've been using as our camp kitchen for years, and we're building a list of excellent and easily-portable recipes. In the midst of an unexpectedly sweltering May day, we decided to make a few salads and bicycle down to the Trent-Severn Canal, on the bank of Little Lake, to have our first picnic of the year. This recipe, one I'd discovered online and altered to suit the ingredients I had on-hand, was a big hit. I have to say that you could just do the first step and stop there and have something so good; only the fact that I'd already chopped up the other ingredients made me continue, and though it was totally delicious and awesome, the plain corn and quinoa are sooo good.
