Picnics are just about mandatory when it comes to Fourth of July festivities. But if you don’t have time to prepare a full spread yourself, Ledger in Salem will make sure you won’t be showing up empty-handed to your Independence Day celebrations. Upgrade your casual outdoor dining game with the North Shore restaurant’s order-ahead “Willow’s Picnic Basket” to pick up while en route to wherever you may be going this year. The baskets are $50 per order, and include housemade charcuterie with bread, cheese, pickles, chips and accoutrements plus housemade cookies for dessert. The only thing you have to do is bring BYOB (bring your own basket). Call 978.594.1908 to order yours.
