"Easy" Foccacia

I thought this post deserved to stand on it's own.  Last week, the King and I went to see a concert where attendees are encouraged to picnic in the lawn seats!  It was fabulous.  We laid down our blanket and dug into our antipasto salad with romaine and arugula lettuces, cherry tomatoes, canellini beans, shredded fontina cheese, salami, kalamata olives, and capers.  For dressing, I whisked together this Parmesan Vinaigrette.  It was tasty.

On the side I served up hunks of this beautiful guy:
His preparation was a labor of love, but well worth it!!  The "easy" in this focaccia recipe is the ease of slapping the ingredients together.  But if you make it, make sure you have plenty of time to allow it to rise in a variety of positions.  It takes patience!

For dessert we chomped on the last of these Rainbow Cookies and finished off a bottle of Riesling.  It was picnic perfect.

What is your perfect picnic food?
