If you’re a fan of feta cheese, you’ll love these sandwiches stuffed with a Greek-inspired chicken salad. Once you try the tangy and refreshing dressing, you'll want to use it as snack dip for raw veggies like grape tomatoes, carrot sticks, and red bell pepper strips or as a sauce to spoon over grilled chicken or beef. For a flavor boost, stir some chopped fresh mint or dill into the dressing. To make this a portable lunch, pack the bread, chicken mixture, and lettuce and tomatoes separately and assemble just before eating. Serve alongside cubed honeydew melon, cantaloupe or a combination of both.
