If you invited all of us out to a summer picnic, and requested us all bring a main dish and a side (ie salad or dessert), what would be a nice main dish to suggest? Fried chicken... what else? It won't be a cookout, so no cooking the food there, just a picnic to share.

Thanks

One of the standard picnic main dishes here in the South is shredded or chopped pork bbq and rolls. Another is ham & biscuit sandwiches.  Since it's hot, they don't need to be refrigerated and are good at room temp.

Turkey sandwiches on herb bread with my apple/walnut topping (goes on in place of mustard or mayo) . I make a mean tossed salad that I get compliments on all the time. Everything is cut up small (lettuce and spinach are torn) but sliced baby carrots, cuke chunks, diced tomatoes, black olives, and minced fresh basil. Your favorite dressing on the side.

I do a wicked tuna casserole. And 'dirt' for dessert.

Of course, now I would bring lobster mac & cheese.

I had this at a friend's house the other day (and it was delicious!)-

Layer:
Black bean layer- drained black beans with some of them mashed up, some cilantro, chili powder, salt
Fire-roasted corn with chopped tomatoes, splash of fresh lime
Fresh guac (I would make this a HEAVY layer- it's my favorite)
Topped with shredded cheese. I could easily omit the cheese...it really didn't do anything for me in the dish.

Bring some flour tortillas and/or corn chips and bob's yer uncle Smiling
