A Duo of Spring Sandwiches from Dorette Snover of C’est Si Bon Cooking School
These sandwiches are reminiscent of the tea sandwiches popular in a bygone era. They make a wonderful revival and are not overly delicate when it comes to their flavor from the pungency of the radishes, anchovies, and fresh herbs.
1 bunch washed spinach,* stems removed
1 bunch arugula*
1 bunch or 5-6 medium red or pink radishes*
2 flat anchovies
12 ounces herbed soft chevre*
1 loaf unsliced white bread,* outside crusts removed
1/4 cup each fresh chopped chives and parsley,* mixed – for garnish
Process the spinach, arugula, radishes, and anchovies in the work bowl of a food processor or chop finely with a knife. Combine with the cream cheese or chèvre. Set aside at room temperature. Slice the loaf of bread horizon tally into 3 layers. Spread each one with 1/3 of the vegetable cheese then sprinkle with 1/3 of the chopped herbs. Position with the top layer of bread and spread with the remaining vegetable cheese and sprinkle with remaining herbs. Slice vertically into 8-10 sandwiches.
