When it comes to picnic food, texture and simplicity reign supreme: Potato chips count as dinner, and a crisp, delightfully sweet watermelon makes the sticky, juice-covered fingers totally worth it. And focus on finger foods (even if you’ve got nice bamboo travel dinnerware, eating with your hands enhances the picnic experience—as long as you pack some wipes). Below, find four summery cookbooks full of big-flavor dishes that will stand up to a long time spent in the picnic basket or a few hours out on the lawn. It’s the Cypriot Potato Salad that I’ll be packing again and again. The resulting flavor is nostalgic…but also miles ahead of the gloppy, flavorless potato salad you might remember from childhood picnics.
