Chicken Salad Sandwich
Childhood memories are made up of people and food. This sandwich takes many of us back to birthday parties, picnics and movies. At times simple things like this can simply never be forgotten.
And so I share my version of a sandwich that many of my aunts used to make for us. Its always appreciated even if it doesnot hold the same affection or sentiment to those who get to eat it in my kitchen!
