Over the past week as I have been browsing through my Southern cookbooks, I have been thinking about Southern traditions. One that might not be so well known is vegetable or chicken salad sandwiches for teas, showers, weddings, or any other special Southern event. In the past, I know these sandwiches were usually served without the crust and cut into appropriate shapes or quartered.
When I saw this recipe in my Charleston cookbook, Music, Menus and Magnolias, I knew I wanted to share it with you. I think it is very versatile and would be appropriate for just about any occasion. I could even see a Mother enticing her children to eat this to increase their vegetable consumption.
Now to really be a Southern tradition, I can imagine the sandwiches being served on a beautiful glass, crystal or silver platter. There isn’t anything more Southern than that.
Happy Weekend Everyone!!!
