"This is a awesome recipe. My best friend usually brings her dog over for a "play date" with my dog. Well, she brought her husband as well. So my husband and I made these for lunch and they loved friend had to have this recipe. I highly recommend, very good!"

"My husband and I made this recipe for a TV audition and our auditioners LOVED it! My husband gobbled up more after the audition was over ~ and he's not a huge "salad" sandwich fan. We'll definitely make this recipe again. The flavours blend great and it was light and yummy."
