I would really like to make a Ploughmans lunch at the weekend and need some inspiration for what to include.

So far I am planning:
Nice bread
Cold meat of some sort
Cheese, variety but not sure what
Pickles and chutney
Cos lettuce
Sliced green apple
Cold beer or cider

What am I missing?

I thought that a ploughmans was usually meat or cheese or at a pinch and if you feeling a bit gallic pate.

I think it sounds like you are already going above and beyond a basic ploughmans and I don't think you need anything else.

Although you could do a some sort of cold pie, crisps and a salad such as coleslaw or rice salad. grin

Pickled onions, farmhouse butter, a strong cheddar and some Stilton, thick cut Wiltshire ham, celery, can't think of any more!! I think you're good to go. Making me hungry though! X

Mrscakes I am not sure what a Ploughman's should have in it and have just listed what I like to graze on!

Pickled onions I had forgotten those, yummy, thank you Swifey

What do you put in a rice salad?

Rice grin

And some chopped pepper, spring onions, maybe sweetcorn and a bit of whatever dressing you have. My DMum puts raisins in as well, but she puts them in carrot salad and curry so I'm not sure that is a recommendation.

Homemade coleslaw. At a pub near me they do a sausage ploughmans which is pretty awesome!

Oh sausage Ploughman's sounds delicious as well!

Boiled egg.

Boiled egg added to the list, always feels a bit retro with salad stuff
