Memorial Day is around the corner, so we asked HBK Incubates member Upicnic for their go-to summer recipe. Quick and easy to assemble, bright with lemon juice and zest, and crunchy with diced fennel and toasted almonds, these sandwiches are sure to become a picnic favorite. Make sure to use sturdy burger buns (or hot dog rolls) with a soft interior to soak up all the goodness.
