Now’s the time for a lobsterrific good meal

Out on the East Coast, where my family comes from, it’s officially lobster season. And that means lots of lobster cookouts and, sometimes, leftover lobster. If you do end up with leftover lobster, we have a great recipe for you.

This is an easy recipe to make and is always a huge hit and very refreshing.  If you don’t have leftovers from a cookout, you can always go ahead and use frozen lobster if you are craving one of these succulent sandwiches.

Now, a backyard, some wine and a hot sunny day is all you need to get this party started – have fun.

1-1/2 cups cooked, cold lobster

1/2 cup mayonnaise
