I am pleased to share my Ladybug Love Tea Sammies that I created for the Valentine's Day party I had with friends this past Sunday. They were a hit and matched with my homemade Ladybug Valentine cards. I have a friend Rosemarie who is so generous & patient that she taught me how to make the cards & we created them as we went along. So, I had to have sammies to match my cards. LOL... It was fun making ladybugs & I couldn't wait for my friends to try them. I love my spread/dressing because it has a touch of heat & packed with flavor. These will disappear quickly, so maybe make a double batch.

How to Make Ladybug Love Tea Sandwiches

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix all ingredients for the spread and refrigerate overnight for better flavor. Several hours before the party slice your small grape tomatoes in half (longwise), the olives in half for the heads so that you can then assemble them. Now, take the tomato and pierce with toothpick that has been dipped into the balsalmic glaze to make your spots on the ladybug plus give addt'l flavor to your sammie. (These measurements for the spices are estimates as I taste while mixing together. Please add a little more if need be.)
  • 2Here is a photo of my ladybug love tea sammies at the Valentine Party we had this past weekend. I cheated and didn't put the ladies polka dots on all of the them....they are non-spotted ladybugs. haha Still though, they looked cute enough for the party.
