If you want that super-fresh sandwich effect for a picnic, pack the freshest sliced loaf you can find, mix the filling in a bowl, keep it chilled and assemble your sandwiches on the spot. They'll never taste better. I like to use poached chicken for a succulent result.
- Combine chicken, celery, mayonnaise, pine nuts, herbs and lemon juice in a bowl. Butter the bread and spread half of the slices with the chicken mixture and some rocket. Top with another slice of bread.
- Cut into triangle quarters, discarding crusts. They will keep fresh in the fridge for several hours if covered with a damp paper towel.
