Genoa Salami with Manzanilla Olive Cream Cheese Finger Sandwiches

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.
