Barbecued Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I’m a fan of salad sandwiches- egg salad, potato salad, tuna salad, and now chicken salad.  I came across this article in the SF Chronicle one weekend and have made it several times since then.  It’s great for hiking trips, camping trips, or just plain lunch.  I like to use leftover rotisserie chicken meat- especially [...]

There was an article called “Simple Acts of Sandwich Genius” that had a few recipes that looks delicious.

There was an article called “Simple Acts of Sandwich Genius” that had a few recipes that looks delicious. The first one I saw was the Focaccia Reuben from SF’s very own Sentinel.
