PhotoRecipe: Sundried Tomato Chicken Salad Tartine

Dear Friends & Eaters,

this is the third recipe from my Lunchbox event. It is a new spin on Chicken Salad Sandwich but you will notice that it is much lighter thatn the traditional one. It is also inspired to my favorite flavors of the Mediterranean Diet, Olives, Capers, Sundried tomatoes. It is diet friendly and tasty!
