I made these a month ago or so. They were delish! My tapenade was too salty, but this sandwich was sooo good. Thanks!

Made these for lunch and they were wonderful! I had some leftover chicken and that made it very quick. These were very tasty! I did add the pepperoncini peppers! Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
