Spring has come and what better way to enjoy the season than to be outside with the sights and sounds and smells and tastes of spring. There is something so nice about enjoying good food in a lovely setting that helps nurture your soul.
Here are some spring picnic ideas to help you enjoy the flavours of the spring season. Spring foods that make great picnic ideas are asparagus, radishes, and fresh spring greens and onions and these dishes will leave you satisfied. Choose one or two or have a feast with more!
Spring Onion and Parmesan Cheese Scones
These savoury scones are completely addictive, especially warm straight from the oven. With this recipe I found the dough quite crumbly and found it easiest to roll out the dough and then cut into pieces before baking as in the photo below.
In the above recipe, to convert the measurements to American: 8 oz. self raising flour=2 cups all purpose flour with 4 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt. 2 oz cheese=4 Tbsp, 2 oz. butter=4 Tbsp. 200/220 C=400 F.

Asparagus and Carmelized Onion Tartlets
