Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwiches

If you like smoked salmon, you'll love these little sandwiches. The herb butter makes them extra special. This recipe came from Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa. She used square pieces of bread and cut them into triangles which is even prettier, but I couldn't find the perfect bread so I just improvised!
What You'll Need:
Herb Butter:
1/2 lb unsalted butter, room temp
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. minced scallions
1 Tbsp. minced fresh dill
1 Tbsp. minced fresh flat leaf parsley
1 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 Loaf dense 7-grain or health bread, 1/4 inch slices
8 slices smoked salmon
What You'll Do:
Combine all the butter ingredients in a mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix until well blended, but do not whip.
Spread butter on 4 slices of bread, top with a slice of smoked salmon then finish with another piece of bread on top. Refrigerate until butter is very cold and then slice each sandwich in half.
