A French Inspired Vegetarian Picnic Dinner. Celebrating Rakshabandan

Every year my cousins Mahesh and Nando and their families are invited for Rakshabandan dinner at our home.  We started the tradition of celebrating Rakshabandan over a decade ago.  It usually falls in the late summer so we try to have dinner outside giving us an opportunity to enjoy the cool evening with drinks and dinner. Last year I decided to make a French inspired picnic dinner as it was going to be a warm evening.  Here is the menu that I created for this special dinner.
