If that’s the case, let us offer a few ideas for sandwiches, from the sublime yet simple chicken salad and to a tuna – raisin, to an egg salad. Just them in your picnic basket and seat under a tree!

Tea sandwiches have always been our favorite. They’re easy to make, easy to tote, and of course, delicious! Planning a picnic can be tricky. You have to consider the weight, durability, and longevity of everything you pack. Sandwiches are the natural picnic snack choice, but all too often they’re the choice you regret making. Anyone who has had to suffer through gooey tomato run-off and soggy bread knows this to be the harsh reality. Thankfully, not all sandwiches are created equal. There are sandwiches that ideal for picnic munching. Not only do these sandwiches stand up to the rigors of traveling, they also improve the longer they sit.

The 3 simple recipes that we are gonna share with you are Chicken Salad Tea Sandwich, Tuna Tea Sandwich with Raisin and Egg Salad Tea Sandwich.

Chicken Salad Tea Sandwich has golden raisins bursting in each bite. The addition of golden raisins adds a refreshing flavor and texture that transforms an ordinary chicken salad mixture to something really special.  A great variation for this recipe is to make it a low-fat recipe by using  a sour cream with mayonnaise.  I know you will love adding this tea sandwich to the menu at your next tea party.
