Tea Party: Smoked Salmon Caper Sandwiches

Today's tea party recipe is, perhaps, a little unorthodox. I mean, smoked fish with Earl Gray? But the point is, it's delicious, and when served as a tiny tidbit, is elegant and dainty as well.

I don't think I'd serve this to children (because, after all, kids can't appreciate the greatness of smoked salmon... more for MEEEE), but if you're having ladies over it's a lovely addition to the sandwich platter.

Grapes are a classic pairing.

Served on sourdough, pumpernickel, or rye, this little sandwich has layers of flavor and character.

Salty briny capers, smoky peppery salmon, garlicky creamy Boursin (or Rondelle or garden herb cream cheese) cheese...

Forget the tea, I'm making these for lunch!

Yum-OH! These sound divine. And I love the artful way you arranged the sandwiches on the plate.

I can tell this was a super classy tea party :)

Me too!! I got them as a wedding gift... they're actually serving trays on a tiered stand (from Costco), but I take them off to use as serving platters sometimes. Any and every excuse to whip them out... :-D.
