Are you commited to the idea of a sandwich?

A Gulf Coast West Indies salad is great. http://www.food.com/recipe...
It's normally served on lettuce with saltines.
But if you're packing for lunch you could pack the wet salad in a small container another with some lettuce. And crackers or bread.
I put some cubed cumber in mine while it's resting overnight as it's really better the next day. or sometimes some re-hydrated Wakame seaweed.
I supposed you could use it in wrap or sandwich but it's very moist and would need to be assembled just before eating.

It's rather a food oddity as it came to Gulf Coast shortly after WWII, presumably by the resturant owner that was stationed in occupied Japan and influenced by the Sunomono salads.
