Picnic Sammys - Your perfect Summer Lunch -- By Amy Bousman, FNTP

Updated: Jun 14, 2021

Summertime is the perfect time to take yourself and family or friends on a picnic, and sammys (sandwiches) are a delicious and easy alternative to a lot of preparation. I discovered this yummy combo as a quick and easy to make lunch while on a road trip several years ago. To this day, it’s my go-to picnic and road food. Enjoy!!
