Never Miss a Delicious Recipe:

Beach-Style Cold Chicken Sandwich (Sanduíche Natural de Frango)

The weather has finally improved here in Texas. It has been a mostly sunny and rather warm day.  What a blessing!
It reminds me my home country Brazil.  If I were there, I’d probably have taken my two little mermaids to the beach to enjoy both the day and our Beach-Style Cold Chicken Sandwich (Sanduíche Natural de Frango).

I’ll never forget how they loved their days on the beach last October– their laughter… all the sand castles that they built together…. Ah, nor could I forget all the fruit popsicles, fresh coconut water, cod cakes, and of course, the tasty chicken sandwich…

This gives me an excellent idea.  Wouldn’t you agree that something healthy and light is the perfect fit for a warm day?
