Here in Alaska we have to enjoy the summer while it lasts—playing, sleeping, and eating outside. Picnics are a perfect summertime activity that combines the great outdoors and (our favorite part) delicious cuisine. A sandwich makes the perfect picnic food, and is a great way to use all of the vegetables we have here in Alaska during the summer!
Plus, endless varieties of breads, spreads, and toppings make sandwiches versatile, fun, and tasty for even the pickiest pallets.
However, bringing sandwiches to your picnic can be a pain, either prepping and hauling everything you need with you, or packing ahead and ending up with less-than-appetizing soggy sandwiches . . .
One of our favorite tools in the kitchen store provides a simple solution to enjoy freshly-made picnic sandwiches without all the hassle, which makes it our pick for picnics.
This Kuhn Rikon Sandwich Knife is the perfect go-to, carry-it-with-you sandwich making tool. The surprisingly sharp serrated side works like a dream for bread, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, cheese—anything at all, really—and the smooth side is designed for spreads and condiments. That means you can easily slice and spread everything you need right there, without packing your whole kitchen.
Bring your sandwich knife in the car, and head straight from the farmers’ market to your picnic site—and don’t forget your blanket!
