Note: Most of these recipes are written for an average family. You will often need to double or triple for much larger party sized servings.

Food Safety: Check out the Eating Outdoors and Handling Food Safely article at fda.gov for some great tips on outdoor food safety!

It is a common misconception that it is unsafe to eat mayonnaise based dishes at a picnic - but it's just not true! Commercial mayonnaise is very safe, is made from pasteurized eggs that are free of the bad bacteria, and, in fact, mayonnaise contains ingredients such as lemon juice and vinegar that actually hamper bacterial growth. It generally isn't the mayonnaise that is troublesome, but the ingredients that are mixed in with the mayonnaise. Follow guidelines for keeping foods chilled, and don't keep them outside too long.

It is always a better choice to serve food indoors in an air conditioned atmosphere, but when serving chilled foods outside, always plan to bring along an oversized dish, and a large bag of ice to fill the dish. Then place your food dish or platter into it. This will help to not only keep your dish at a cool serving temperature, but it will also help to protect it from spoilage.

Don't forget to get some food covers too!
