If you are looking to host a brunch this summer, definitely take it outside, with a cooler and a little preparation you will have a blast. The beauty of this picnic is that you don’t have to cook anything! The Mint Pineapple Granita and Popsicles can even be done a few days in advance. A tray with dried and fresh fruit, cheese and smoked salami with some gourmet crackers and a sweet marmalade is all you need. Lay in shade and enjoy spending time with friends and family.
