No one will be able to resist these lovely open-faced sandwiches that definitely say "spring". Served on toasted English muffins, slices of chicken and tomato are topped with fresh asparagus spears, then draped with a creamy lemon sauce. "This is a great way to use leftover chicken or turkey," says Anca Cretan of Hagerstown, Maryland.
