Guys, this year I’m ditching the paper plates and entertaining in style with Lenox’s gorgeous French Perle melamine picnic dishware!

When was the last time you went on a picnic?  I try to sneak in picnic events every summer, and they have been the most memorable outings.  In fact, I giggle when I think about the year I sent Alan to claim a picnic table that was located right on the beach.  I wanted the perfect setting for my mom’s birthday celebration, and that particular spot was so pretty!

The extra effort it took to grab an ideal spot was worth it!  Now every time we pass by that area in unison we’ll say, “remember when we had a picnic there?!” Strawberry Avocado Chicken Salad with sugar free poppyseed dressing can be made in advance and assembled at your destination #picnic #salad #strawberry | www.thefoodieaffair.com

Sometimes I grab simple prepared foods like hummus, cheese and crackers, but my most favorite meals are the ones that are healthy, hearty, easy to prepare, and you feel like you’re dining at a restaurant!

This Strawberry Avocado Chicken Salad with poppy seed dressing is an ideal meal for a picnic.  All the food can be prepared in advance, and then transported in the same lightweight serving pieces.

Aren’t the details on these melamine dishes lovely? When you first glance at them they look just like Lenox’s stoneware.

You might remember the chicken cacciatore recipe I made with Lenox using French Perle Groove stoneware.  Both types of dishes are durable, heat-resistant, dishwasher-safe and beautiful!

The melamine dishware is super light, which makes them easy to pack up and enjoy while outdoors!

I prepared all the ingredients ahead of time and covered them with plastic wrap.  Once we got to the park all that needed to be done was to assemble the salad.  Easy!

Lenox’s French Perle melamine pieces are available as sets of four in blue, aqua, and gray.  In addition, large serving bowls, platters, and matching stemware will complete a set for outdoor entertaining.

Enjoy this Strawberry Avocado Chicken Salad with homemade peach lemonade and for dessert how about trying these low carb chocolate thumbprint cookies!

    Light and lovely salad and really adore your dish ware set. Beautiful. We have not had one picnic yet, hoping that Mother Nature just stops raining for one weekend…

    I love that melamine picnic dishware! They look Tuscan or even old world. So pretty! We don’t go on enough picnics and I want to really plan some more outings this year. Going to check that dishware out immediately!

    Nice salad for a picnic and I love those dishes. The vintage look makes the picnic even more special. I will grab a straw hat and a silk scarf to complete the look
