|It is said that in the 19th century, before the era of the supermarkets, most Americans avoided wasting food, so if you had scraps of chicken, beef, ham or fish, those leftover would be mixed with mayonnaise and served next day on lettuce for lunch.
Amid this situation women became more active in the public life, they started to be an important part of the work force and lunch restaurants came up with new ideas to cater this new clientele. As office lunch hours has time limits, serve the ladies home food -often those mentioned salads- between breads turned into a smart solution to speed up table turnover and encouraged to get lunch to go as well.
As the time has passed the sandwich became more and more popular and a lot variations have arisen.
