Finally the long and crazy winter we had is over. We are finally heading into warmer weather. It’s still getting a bit chilly at night, but its becoming good porch sitting weather. If I am being honest, that front porch was the whole reason I agreed to buy this house. I do like other aspects of it, but i love the front porch. When you come out of long winter you really feel like you are waking up. We get so burned out sitting inside, that you just want to be outside soaking up some sun and vitamin d.
I can remember as a child one of my most favorite things to do when it warmed up was to have a picnic. It didn’t have to be anything fancy, and usually consisted of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but it was just nice to finally be outside and feel the warm. Now, here in Kentucky the Spring warmth doesn’t last long before the sweltering summer heat rolls around, so we try to enjoy it as much as possible. There’s just something special about spreading a blanket out on the ground and enjoying a meal with yourself or with others that is so relaxing.
Over the years my picnic fare has become a bit more grown up and we even will grill hot items, but nothing beats sitting down not the blanket and taking that first bite. There are staples to bring along on every picnic, blankets, plates, napkins, utensils, food, and a basket to pack it all in. We bring along all the condiments and we would never have a picnic without French’s® Yellow mustard.
French’s® Yellow mustard is my go-to brand for mustard, its 100% natural, stone-ground mustard seed, nothing artificial. I know that I am getting a mustard that is full of the flavor I love without any weird additives. French’s® mustard is a must have for many different picnic and grilling items, hot dogs, and no burger wold be complete without it. My favorite use for it is in chicken salad.
We love chicken salad. It’s the perfect picnic go-to. You make it before hand, it’s one of those dishes that just gets better the longer it sits. I pop it into a small container inside a small cooler and its the perfect take along on our picnic. No matter how I jazz up my chicken salad recipe French’s® mustard always pairs perfectly and gives that mustard flavor I am looking for. French’s® has several varieties of mustard including Spicy Brown Mustard and smooth and cream Dijon. Check out all the offerings French’s® has give these mustard’s a try for you next picnic.
For our picnic I made:
- 2 chicken breast cooked and shredded ( I cooked them in a little oil and rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper)
- 6-8 slices of diced pickled jalapeños
- 2 tbs of dill pickle relish
- ¾ cup of mayo
- ¼ cup of honey
- 2 tbs of French’s Yellow mustard
- Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and stir until combined. Enjoy!
