Sandwich Spreads

My contribution for lunch with friends today were three sandwich toppings. Fresh garden lettuce, herbed butter, and olive-walnut spread were prepared at home and taken on a tray to my friend's and neighbor's home. Here are the instructions for the spreads:

Herbed Butter

1/2 cup Earth Balance margarine
1/8 cup chopped fresh chives
1/8 cup chopped fresh basil
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh sage

Mix together and place in servig bowl. Garnish as desired.

Mix together and place in serving bowl. Garnish as desired.

I was surprised at how yummy the herbed butter was! It's savory depth was really good on the whole wheat Tasha Tutor bread!

The Olive-Walnut Spread is an old stand-by from my childhood days. It's a good sandwich filling when you don't have traditional fillings in the fridge. For variation, Tofutti Cream Cheese or Tofutti Sour Cream (both vegan) can be added as well.
