    This is amazing. I love sandwiches, but this is actually better served with crackers (or homemade garlic bread twists/sticks) on a bed of lettuce. I’m a bread addict. I have baked my own for decades because I’m fussy and pretty much a bread snob. This salad though, it deserves star billing.

    Many thanks for another staple recipe.

  2. Hello – this makes 4 or 6 regular sized sandwiches? Making it for an afternoon tea! Thanks

    1. LOL…yes it does! I was going to answer you yesterday but got side tracked. You bet it would be great wrapped in a wrap. In fact, the note is because of you question. Glad you saw this and hope you enjoy it! Cheers :)
