Golden Delicious apples naturally keep from browning after cutting, making them a good choice when adding apple slices to sandwiches.

Red leaf lettuce has a great color that would suit these party sandwiches perfectly.

Cinnamon-swirled bread used for the raisin bread can make this one snazzy sandwich!
