Finger sandwiches are coming out of grandma's closet and joining the happy hour crowd. These little guys are way fabulous and they'll make anybody smile. Your guests who are expecting a plain old cucumber sandwich will be blown away by the gutsy flavors hiding behind a sweet and innocent fa?e. I make these with thin-sliced bread so the sandwiches are light and not too filling ? look for bread labeled "Very Thin." Pepperidge Farm makes a good one in both white and wheat.
