These small sandwiches and a glass of Champagne are a great way to start your New Year’s party.  Such little affort for such delicious bites !!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012  !!!!!


12 slices whole-meal bread

2 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed and chopped coarsely

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon of lemon zest

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 cup sour cream

500g sliced smoked salmon


1- Combine capers, dill, zest, lemon juice, garlic and sour cream in a small bowl.

2- Spread each slice of bread with 1 tablespoon of sour cream mixture and cover with the slices of salmon.  Continue alternating the layers with the remaining bread, sour cream mixture, and salmon slices, finishing with a slice of bread.  You can make them 3 or 5 layers, but no more than this, the sandwiches will be very difficult to cut and handle.

3- Cover them with plastic food wrap and put them in the refrigerator for one hour.

4- Put the bread sandwiches onto a chopping board, using a knife cut off the crust of the bread and then cut the bread into squares or rectangles.

5- Top small sandwiches with little extra sour cream and dill, if desired.


1- These sandwiches keep well for 24 hours so you can make them ahead of time.  They will not be soggy.
