Picnic Foccacia Sandwich is loaded with meats, cheeses,and veggies. Made on a foccia loaf, drizzled with italian dressing and cut into beautiful wedgesThis Picnic Foccacia Sandwich has an onion and chive cream cheese spread on the bread, is loaded with meats, cheeses, fresh veggies, and then drizzled with an Italian dressing.  It is a perfect sandwich for these hot summer days.

I love focaccia bread, but have trouble finding it sometimes in my area.  One morning, while in Panera Bread, I spotted a loaf and quickly purchased it. 

I had been wanting to make this sandwich for a while, and we had a beautiful day for a picnic.

This is also a great lunch or dinner. I have previously made it for a party and a baby shower.
