Lemon Basil Chicken Caesar Salad Sandwich

Lemon Basil Chicken Caesar Salad Sandwich
Chicken salad never had it so good as in this lemon basil chicken caesar salad sandwich! I am a fan of chicken salads where chicken is servered in a light, usually mayo based, dressing along with extras and for a twist I enjoy using a caesar salad dressing as the dressing, especially when it's a home made one! Since it's summer I like to add some seasonal flavours like lemon and basil which add an amazingly light brightness to the dressing that just screams summer! These lemon basil chicken caesar salad sandwiches are the perfect summer lunch food whether for at home, at work, at a picnic or even on the beach!
