    Place thin slices of smoked salmon (Nova is particularly good) between slices of bread.

Lovely idea - I can see it in the garden in summer, sittingunder parasols and drinking iced tea...have you ever tried rose petal sandwiches? They are a victorian lady's delicate treat! Cut the crusts off thinly sliced, soft, white bread, use unsalted butter and place pink and red (washed) rose petals in between 2 slices, cut into fingers et voila another Victorian delicacy!
