Dust off the basket and shake out the blanket—a spring picnic is the perfect way to celebrate the start of the new season! Along with sandwiches, serve a side of colorful coleslaw, made creatively with baby Brussels sprouts instead of the usual shredded green cabbage. Not bitter, like the bigger bulbs, baby sprouts still bring in big nutrition, boasting fiber, vitamins A, C and K, and a punch of potassium. Let the mix marinate in a tangy Dijon dressing for up to three days before packing up and heading to the park.
