This tray of tea sandwiches has many kinds of spreads, including egg salad, tuna salad, cream cheese and honey with raisins, pimento cheese with bacon and more. The sandwiches range in size and flavor.The types of sandwiches range from simple to unique. For example, there is a sandwich that uses pork tenderloin instead of bread, and it has a spicy mustard spread. The traditional chicken salad sandwich has been given an "adult" flavor with a sprinkle of pepper on the egg salad.Pimento cheese is one of my favorites, and I have found that cutting the sandwiches into squares makes them easier to handle when eating.

Cucumbers are full of water and nutrients, and they help balance the acidity from both the lemon juice and cream cheese. They also have a refreshing feel that is perfect for a hot summer's day!
The herb called for in this recipe is dill. Dill may sound like it would be too strong, but it blends with the other flavors perfectly and doesn't overpower them.
