Fantastic - I love this sandwich! Feeds a crowd and best of all it is one of the rare sandwiches that is not loaded with mayo.
Easy to make and delicious.
This is great recipe to bring to a potluck! Delicious and easy to transport!
I have been making this every year for the past three years! Excellent sandwich!!! Keep the artichokes in the sandwich! They add a wonderful taste. Love it!
