Stuffed picnic loaf

The days of summer are looming, with them comes our desire to get outside, enjoy the heat and eat al fresco as it is in picnic in the country side or beach or on a barbecue on our back yards .

Light and healthy meals are the best ordered in these hot days ahead. Fresh salads with tender lettuces are great too.

 I made this stuffed loaf for a lunch with friends . Used a rechessa bread ,by its shape  But you can use any loaf that you like. I cut the top and carefully scoop out must of the bread, leaving just the outer shell.  Stir in steamed broccoli with a garlic clove . I cover with finely chopped tomatoes, dried oregano and drizzle with olive oil and then cover it with slices of goat cheese or some  cheese you like and finished with smoked salmon. replace the lid.Wrap the whole loaf in film and put onto a plate. Top with a board and heavy food tin to weigh it down . Chill in the refrigerator overnight .

Cut into wedges to serve

The salad was because I fell in love with the beautiful lettuce, very tender and fresh. Just use red onions and slices of ham, and arugula. Simple and delicious

Que maravilla, me ha encantado tu post, has reflejado perfectamente la luminosa luz de la primavera y ese pan es ideal, me rechifla.

Fíjate que yo publiqué ayer justo lo contrario, un canto al otoño,a la luz tenue,a los días oscuros y fríos y me encanta también. Quizás después del cegador resplandor del verano todos ansiamos los tonos más cobrizos de la siguiente estación.

Preciosas las fotos, enhorabuena!

un beso

Sylvia, your Stuffed Picnic Loaf looks so very lovely and your amazing photography has me dreaming of warmer days - what an outstanding presentation! I have never added steamed broccoli to sandwiches before but it does sound just wonderful!
