Picnic for the Planet – Happy Earth Day!

Last Friday was Earth Day and in honor of Earth Day, The Nature Conservancy celebrated with a Picnic for the Planet. Here is the Woodstock, IL version held in Emricson Park.

On the menu: Pressed Picnic Sandwiches and Three-Bean Salad with Agave-Mustard Vinaigrette


To veganize the sandwiches, I used Ste Martaen’s muenster cheese (although, if I had the time, I would have made this delicious-sounding cashew goat cheese). I was also going to add Peppered Tofurky Deli Slices, but they had gone bad. It was still a yummy sandwich without the “meat.”

The agave-mustard dressing (just sub agave nectar for honey in the recipe) is so good!


To drink, we had seltzer water with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, strawberries and agave nectar.


We were joined by this little lady.


Our amazing view at the top of the hill.


Dessert! S’more cookie bars. So rich and decadent.

  1. So cool that you held a Picnic for the Planet! I love that basket! Everything you make always looks amazing, but those s’mores cookie bars look unbelievable!
