Open-Face Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Open-Face Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I’ve had this recipe in my queue since May. I keep looking at it. And I keep drawing a blank. So I figured I’d just post it already, without any clever quips or dialogue, before it becomes one of those forgotten recipes stashed away in the depths of the recipe pile. Because it was tasty. It was different. And it deserves to be remembered.

    Just wanted to add that I have used their mayo/greek yogurt/dijon/lemon/chive dressing to make a KILLER potato salad. Just the right amount of bite and zip to go with the creamy mayo. I don’t know about you, but I hate hate hate overly mayonnaisey potato salads.
