How to Make Fennel Tea Sandwiches


  • 1Combine all of the SANDWICH FILLING ingredients in a prep bowl. (Or use a mini-chopper or food processor and PULSE into small pieces.) Taste and adjust if needed. Note: I prepared the sandwich filling minus the pistachios the night before I planned to serve it. When I was ready to prepare the sandwiches the pistachio nuts were stirred in then.
  • 2Just prior to serving, divide and spoon the sandwich filling on half of the bread slices. Top with other bread half and cut into quarters.
  • 3Arrange on a platter and garnish with fennel fronds. Do not prepare the sandwich too far in advance or they will become soggy.
