Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwich

I love going to tea rooms with Rachel.  We actually have a "tradition" of going during the Christmas season.  One of the tea rooms we really like, served salmon tea sandwiches.  I ate them up like they were going out of style!  The other day I was grocery shopping at the commissary that never has anything I'm specifically looking for......lucky for me I wasn't out shopping for smoked  salmon.....I just happened to see it!  I quickly put it in my buggy (that's Southern for shopping cart) and thought I'd figure out how to make the sandwich later. What I found & concocted is really delicious.  Rachel liked it and even said that I should post it here on my blog.

Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwiches
by me - Sherry
Ingredients -
  • 2 slices soft wheat bread or soft white bread (I used wheat - ya know that fiber deal)
  • about 1-2 tsp fresh dill (season to taste), finely chopped (suppose you can use dry dill, we had fresh from our garden)
  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ounce smoked salmon
Directions -
  1. Mix the cream cheese and dill together in a small bowl.
  2. Cut the crust off the bread.
  3. Spread the mixture on both pieces of bread.
  4. Place the salmon on one piece of bread and then top with the other.
  5. To make it look like a tea sandwich, cut diagonally creating 4 pieces.....if you really don't care and just want to eat....then by all means - it's ready, go ahead and eat.
Serves - 1

My sandwich was small because of the bread I used.  I had the no-name cheap commissary bread. So, depending on the size of your bread you may have a few more calories in yours. Rachel and I ate our sandwiches with Tostitos Artisan Baked Three Cheese Queso tortilla chips (2g fiber/150 calories per 8 chips).  Also, if you've never eaten smoked salmon, it's a little salty.  Now, the only reason I have to go back to the tea room is actually just the tea! 

I still can't belive the commissary had this!
