Tested till perfect Canada Day Picnic Sandwich

Canada Day Picnic Sandwich

Want something special to celebrate our country's birthday? Make Canada's best sandwich to put in your picnic hamper on any July 1. Simply hollow out a loaf of your favorite bread — we used round crusty loaf — and fill it with a truly delicious filling. The loaf can be transported to the picnic site in a cooler, then cut in wedges and served from a napkin lined basket.

Cut top off loaf. Hollow out bread, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) shell.

Mix together 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the mayonnaise, chicken, grapes, celery, almonds, onions, and salt and pepper to taste. Brush the shell generously with remaining mayonnaise and line with lettuce. Spoon about two-thirds of the chicken mixture into romaine-lined shell. Layer slivered red pepper over salad; spoon remaining chicken mixture on top. Replace bread top.

Wrap sandwich tightly in plastic and refrigerate until picnic time.
