Did you know prior to innovation of afternoon teas, the English served only two main meals, in early morning, and late night dinners. It is not surprising that everyone complained of a "sinking feeling" in the late afternoon. As a remedy the addition of a five o'clock meal was added.
I don't know about you, but I don't normally serve afternoon tea. This recipe makes a perfect appetizer and a fabulous sandwich spread.
Savory Salmon Spread
1/2 cup butter, softened
In the bowl of your mixer blend the butter and cream cheese at medium speed until creamy. Flake the salmon and add to the mixture. Add the green onions, lemon juice, parsley, and salt. Mix well, and chill until firm, an hour or more.
Shape into a 7-inch round and flatten the top slightly. Place on a lettuce-lined serving plate and garnish with egg and parsley. Serve with toast points and/or assorted crackers.
