Tea Sandwiches

Tea sandwiches are simply small sandwiches that are traditionally served with tea. Their small size and big taste make them a unique addition to Mother's Day lunch. Be creative!
  • 1 can water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
  • 3 T. low fat salad dressing
  • 1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped celery
  • 3 T. chopped fresh chives
  • 2 T. fresh thyme
  • 12 slices bread

Mix tuna, salad dressing and lemon juice in a small bowl. Add seasonings and salt and pepper to taste.

Using a cookie cutter, cut a 3-inch circle out of each bread slice. Carefully spread the tuna mixture on half of the bread rounds. Top with the other half of the rounds.

Add some presentation style by using simple flower cookie cutters to make flower-shaped sandwiches, adding some fresh edible flowers such as nasturtiums or violets or strips of sun-dried tomato or cucumber, or lightly toasting your sandwiches and surrounding them with fresh flowers.
