Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a bowl, combine the butter, chives, dill, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

  • Lay out the bread slices; spread with prepared butter mixture. Top half the slices with the smoked salmon. Lay remaining slices, buttered-side down, on top of the salmon. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet, cover with plastic, and place in refrigerator until the butter is cold, about 30 minutes.

  • Transfer sandwiches to a cutting board. Trim crusts from sandwiches, and cut in half to form thin rectangles. Serve chilled.

Yum! Made with mini pumpernickel, and used about a 1/4 lb. more of the butter mixture and 1/2 lb. less of the salmon. Perfect for our high tea birthday party.
