How to Make VEGETABLE TEA SANDWICHES

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and seed cucumber. Dice cucumber, red pepper, carrots, and celery very finely.
  2. Combine first nine ingredients in large bowl, stirring until well blended. Salt and pepper to taste. Spread mixture on half the bread slices, topping with the other half. Cut how you like.
  3. The veggie measurements are approximate; you can feel free to throw whatever you like in there. I actually think it would be good with pecans or some other kind of nut to give it extra crunch.
  4. **** I love the idea of small shrimp with diced chicken together on top of everything.
