I generally would bring a bottle of wine, cheese of some sort, a summer sausage or roasted cornish hens and of course some good company.

Little off topic, but if you have a grill.....

Slice jalapeno in half longways,
Fill with cream cheese and olives,
Wrap in bacon and hold in place with a water soaked toothpick,
Grill until bacon is done......

They're easy to make on a picnic or camping out with just a bit of prep time.

You don't even need a grill for these, make a small fire and heat a flat rock large enough to hold all your poppers.
These could even be made ahead of time at home and brought along cold.

Great idea ranger!

Potato salad is a picnic classic over here. This is a recipe for a bit different one, yet very tasty.

HORSERADISH POTATO SALAD

(source : Tennessee Home and Farm)

Ingredients

8 medium red potatoes
1 ½ cups mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 ½ teaspoons horseradish
1 teaspoon celery seed
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 medium onion, minced
Instructions

Boil potatoes in jackets. Peel and slice 1/8 inch thick.
Combine remaining ingredients except the onions and parsley.
Mix onion and parsley separately.
Place a layer of potatoes in serving dish; salt lightly. Cover with layer of sauce.
Sprinkle with parsley and onion.
Continue layering until done, ending with parsley and onion. Do not stir.
Chill 8 hours or overnight.

My family loved it, we often had it with chicken drum sticks I prepared at home to eat them cold later. The horseradish makes the difference, very tasty.
