Double Crunch Sandwich Stacks

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 0 mins

This sandwich is tasty, healthy, packed w/flavour & crunch & ideal for an elegant light lunch or even a picnic since the egg salad & slaw mixtures are prepared in advance & the sandwiches easy to assemble. My source was the California Egg Commission, but I did amend the recipe slightly, the quantities to allow for fewer servings & the prep to make it clearer. Stated times do not include hard-boiling the eggs or refrigeration time.

Yummy sandwich, tasty and filling! I left out the onions as I don't care for them. The coleslaw with the Italian dressing was great and a good match to the egg salad. Served for dinner with a cup of soup and didn't bother with trimming the crust. Great hearty "meal" sandwich - thanks for sharing the recipe!
