Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwiches

by jerseygirl on July 28, 2011 · 13 comments

I have to say that I am not a dainty tea kind of girl. But one afternoon I went to The Four Seasons for high tea with Wendy from La Phemme Phoodie. We had a great time and the tea, sandwiches and mini pastries were delicious. I definitely would like to go back however it is not in my budget to go too often. In the meantime, I had a craving for some tea sandwiches so one day for lunch I decided to make smoked salmon sandwiches with cream cheese and cucumbers.They were easy and delicious. These sandwiches would be a great addition to a brunch. I didn’t give any exact measurements in the recipe because everyone likes the filling a little different. I prefer my sandwiches light on the cream cheese but spread on as much or as less as you want.Link
I also want to congratulate Patricia who is the Walmart gift card winner! Please email me your address and I will get the prize out to you.

Have a great weekend everyone! I am off the the Big Summer Potluck blogger conference and will be back next week. I am sure I will have lots to write about.

There's something about cream cheese and lox that screams for cucumber. I've eaten it like that all my life (on a bagel, of course :-).

I also like adding thinly sliced sweet onion.

Have you ever tried it with pressed cottage cheese? It may not work as well in a tea sandwich since it's more difficult to spread, but it tastes great.

Now that is a sophisticated simple sandwich.

I don't like salmon so I make this sandwich with radishes instead of salmon. Love it!

I love this kind of sandwich, even though I, too, am not exactly a dainty kind of gal. Have fun at the conference!

I love tea sandwiches! Let's find a tea room near us or go to the one in Mantua. Can't wait to hear about your trip 🙂

We plan on smoking our own salmon this summer & you know we'll be making some sandwiches.

I usually eat sandwiches after my afternoon nap. I have never tried salmon sandwich but now I have changed my mind. It seems like a great tea-time dish. Thanks.
