10 Sandwiches for a Summer Picnic Lunch

Recipe Roundup

Are you grilling out tomorrow, July 4th? Or maybe you're doing a more casual picnic — just you, a friend, a basket with some sandwiches, and bottle of Prosecco. If that's the case, let us offer a few ideas for sandwiches, from the sublime yet simple tomato-mozzarella sandwich, to a bánh mì stuffed with lemongrass tofu, to the classic farmer's lunch of apples, mustard, and cheese. Oh, and we throw in that famous Smörgåstårta (aka Sandwich Cake), just for fun!

TOP ROW
• 1 Tomato Mozzarella Sandwich - A favorite from summers in Italy.
• 2 Bánh Mì with Lemongrass Tofu - The classic Vietnamese sandwich.
• 3 Boiled Egg, Seared Asparagus and Pickled Onion Sandwiches - Fresh and colorful.
• 4 Farmer's Lunch Sandwich - Best with sharp cheddar and Granny Smith apple.
• 5 Thin-Sliced Roasted Pork Sandwiches with Southwestern Spices - A heftier sandwich.

BOTTOM ROW
• 6 Cheese and Onion Sandwich - A British-style sandwich with mayo.
• 7 Eggplant Caponata Sandwiches - This sandwich filling can also be served as a dip.
• 8 Dill and Yogurt Chicken Salad - I'm biased, but I think this is the best chicken salad!
• 9 Smoky Salmon BLTs - Substitute smoked salmon if you don't want to grill.
• 10 Avocado and Bacon Club Sandwich Cake - The famous sandwich cake!

What's your favorite sandwich for a picnic lunch? Me, I'm still partial to natural peanut butter and honey on whole wheat bread. I love how the honey crystallizes in the warmth of the sunshine!
