Menu for the picnic

Cheese puffs. Couscous salad - couscous (duh;-), butternut, capers, spring onion, broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, feta, pine nuts, garlic and chilli, drizzled with fresh lemon juice. Bean salad - green beans, yellow and red peppers, tomatoes, olives, red onion, garlic and chilli. Olive oil and white balsamic vinegar dressing. Picnic terrine - hollowed out rye bread spread with basil pesto and filled with mozzarella cheese, roasted brinjal, roasted red peppers, rocket, cucumber, hard-boiled eggs. Put the lid back on the bread and weight down with a brick or tile so all the ingredients settle nicely in the bread, then when you cut it it doesn't fall apart. Fruit salad - pineapple, mango, nectarine, peach, black currant,  kiwi and granadilla, with a generous amount of fresh-squeezed orange juice. Sit down and enjoy. Yum.
