Don't serve any old sandwich at your next summer picnic. Instead turn to this tasty version from Chris Santos of New York City's Pinknic. Here he makes a delicious popcorn shrimp salad with Old Bay aioli that he packs in a separate container. Once ready to serve, he loads up 7-grain rolls with the tasty filling. The shrimp salad is so flavorful and texturally pleasing that you can skip adding lettuce or anything else.
