watercress cream cheese tea sandwiches

I made a few more tea sandwiches to show you. I’m not going to claim they are healthy. Watercress is very peppery and the cream cheese and bread tames it. 

I picked up the ingredients at my co-op, which sells high quality natural and organic food. The cream cheese is from Willapa Hills Creamery and is really good.

Cream Cheese Watercress Tea Sandwiches
  • 7 oz. fresh cream cheese
  • 1 oz. watercress, chopped
  • ½ loaf white bread
  1. Mix together the chopped watercress and cream cheese in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Spread the mixture onto the bread, make a sandwich.
  3. Cut the crust off the sandwich and quarter the sandwich into triangles.
  4. Arrange on plate.

As a child I remember plucking watercress fresh from our creek and chewing on it. Now as an adult the addition of cream cheese and bread sounds delicious.

What a wonderful memory, Laurie, thanks for sharing. It’s not something we can do today due to potential bacterial contamination of the water. I remember dipping my tin cup into a stream and drinking when we were backpacking, now we can’t do that anymore either. Now that I’ve got my feet wet on the tea party thing, I want to throw another one at a time you can come.
