Taking a trip to the Mediterranean coast of Europe over a weekend isn’t always possible. But you can always bring the flavors of the coastal region of Europe to your table! This Mediterranean Chicken Focaccia Sandwich is a recipe that comes together really fast and really should be made ahead of time.
That makes it a great choice for a picnic! The sandwich spends time in the refrigerator, weighed down by heavy cans or a cast iron skillet. It’ll be all set to package up and transport to your picnic site, ready to be unwrapped and sliced when it’s time to serve.
Layers of delectable ingredients tucked into an herbed loaf of focaccia is the perfect way to celebrate the robust flavors of the Mediterranean!
Dig into this Summer meal on a loaf of bread:
The vegetable relish contains a combination of ripe, juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, red onion and Kalamata olives.
Can you just taste it drizzled with some of the Creamy Balsamic Dressing?
And you notice that the dressing is white, right? How can that be if it has balsamic vinegar in it? Aha! Balsamic vinegar also comes in a white variety! Now you can make creamy dressings that don’t turn out an awful shade of “mud”!
The dressing is drizzled over both the relish and chicken layers, so it adds a ton of flavor to the sandwich. You want to add enough dressing to moisten the ingredients, but not so much to make your bread soggy! Don’t be too generous, you can always add more if you serve the remaining dressing on the side.
