Sailboat Sandwiches for Pint-Size Captains
10 mins (prep 10)
7 ingredients
2 servings
These really cute sailboat sandwiches can be made with either tuna salad or peanut butter. I added a carrot "life preserver" and a small slice of zucchini for a steering wheel for the tuna boat. I also added a fruit loop "life preserver" and a wheel pretzel for a steering wheel on the peanut butter boat. Tip: For party food, place boats on a platter of crisps or potato chips to give a "wave" effect, and use leftover pieces of cheese to make shark fins, and sprinkle with some colored goldfish.
