Ideas for Creating Sandwiches with Salad Fillings
If you are having guests over for a meal, a sandwich buffet is easy to throw together when you make the ingredients ahead of time. Your theme could emphasize salads. Chicken or turkey salad, an egg salad, seafood salad, veggie salad, hummus, or tofu may all be used. Quorn Cutlets can substitute for chicken or turkey in salads for a vegetarian version of the classic poultry salads. With a variety of breads, rolls, wraps, and condiments, your sandwich creations are almost unlimited. Here are some ideas for sandwiches made with salad fillings. The breads and condiments on this ideas list might help you get started with suggestions for your own buffet.
