Smoked Salmon, Cucumber, and Watercress Tea Sandwich Recipe

When my husband and I were traveling in Ireland we enjoyed the most memorable afternoon tea at the Westbury Hotel in Dublin. The setting, the food, and the service were all top-notch.

We both especially loved their smoked salmon and crab tea sandwiches on homemade soda bread. They were simply divine and I would love to have their recipe!

Well, I don’t have their recipe but I did find something close from Southern Living. I used their recipe and made some minor adaptions.

Sandwiches can be made ahead. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until it is time serve. I made the sandwich filling a day ahead and stored covered in a glass bowl. I made the sandwiches a couple of hours ahead and stored wrapped in plastic in refrigerator.

Super easy and delicious!
