Shrimp and Dill Tea Sandwich Recipe

1 package (8 ounce) cream cheese
1 can (4 ½ ounces) baby shrimp drained
½ cup very finely chopped celery
¼ cup minced onion
Lemon juice, few drops
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
Worcestershire sauce, dash
Party Rye Bread
Fresh Dill

Soften cream cheese. Mash shrimp into bits. Mix all ingredients well with an electric mixer or food processor, and refrigerate 3 – 4 hours before serving. Yield 1 ½ cups spread.

Spread on slices of party rye bread.

Just before serving, garnish with a fresh sprig of dill. If you can’t find fresh dill, very lightly sprinkle with dried dill weed.

You may notice in the photo here, the lady who made these was unable to find party rye bread and fresh dill.  We used sliced French baguettes and fresh snipped chives.
