Finger food for your next picnic.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup egg salad
  • 1 cup tuna salad
  • 1 cup chicken salad
  • 1 loaf thinly sliced white bread
  • 1 loaf thinly sliced wheat, rye, or pumpernickel
  • 4 Tbsp butter, softened
  • ½ cup minced herbs or nuts

INSTRUCTIONS

1
For the dark squares: take a piece of dark bread, spread a sandwich spread, and cover with top slice. Spread top slice with same sandwich spread and repeat, making a triple layer sandwich.
2
Compress lightly and cut the crusts off of the sandwich. Then, cut the sandwich into 4 equal squares. Repeat with white bread using another type of sandwich spread.
3
If desired, spread cut sides with a little of the butter and dip into chopped herbs or nuts for garnish. Arrange stacked in pairs on a serving plate in a checkerboard pattern, alternating light and dark.
4
Another garnishing idea is to spear each sandwich with an olive, pickle slice, or small cherry tomato and line up on platter like a checkerboard.
