Help me round out my picnic dinner

bblonde | Jun 15, 2012 01:09 PM

I have a date with bf to watch Shakespeare in the Park! I told him I'll provide the picnic. So far I have lemon-dill chicken salad wraps, Ina Garten's orzo with roasted vegetables (I used leftover grilled). Any suggestions for a special tea/lemonade to pack up, and a dessert? I just halved some beautifully ripened strawberries and tossed in some blackberries. I would love to use these up if possible, and I could go with a simple fruit salad, but I was hoping for something a bit more special, or an accompaniment for the berries. I ask because most picnic desserts are of the cookie/bar variety. If I go there I will probably serve that as a go-along-with.
