Smoked Salmon Mousse with Cucumber Sandwiches


This May has been all about tea parties. Here's another fine recipe for a tea party sandwich.

8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons minced onion
2 teaspoons dill weed
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper
7 oz. canned smoked salmon (Chicken of the Sea)
3 tablespoons capers
1 English cucumber, sliced thin
10 slices thinly sliced rye or pumpernickel bread, buttered

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, minced onion, dill weed, horseradish, garlic powder, and salt and pepper, mixing well to combine. Stir in the smoked salmon and capers. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, layer mousse onto buttered pieces of bread and top with thinly sliced cucumbers. Top with another piece of bread or serve open-faced. Slice into quarters. Serves 20-40 small sandwiches.
