It is picnic season. The Cherry Blossoms have bloomed and the Spring weather is here. Take advantage of it and go to the Mall for a picnic or find your favorite park. This chicken salad sandwich ring is perfect to take along. Make sure to do it on a day when there are no April showers. I also love to make this sandwich ring to take out to the Virginia wineries.

Cucumber sandwiches are one of the classic tea sandwiches for Kentucky Derby parties. I first tasted these sandwiches long ago when my friends had tea parties for their birthdays when I was very young. We learned how to sip tea and hold our pinkies up. Tea sandwiches provide your guest something easier to manage when dressed in nice clothing. You can try these sandwiches for a Derby party or even make them for Mother's day.
