I love making chicken salad ala Jason's Deli. It's chicken with mayo and crushed pineapple and slivered, toasted almonds. I like to serve it on a white country bread.

Here are my votes:

Ham salad (I adore this!)on rye

Egg salad with cress on white

Cream cheese and green olive on pumpernickle

(although KE's cream cheese with capers, red onion and salmon sounds good, too)

My goodness, so many good ideas--the ladies are in for a treat. Now all I have to do is try to decide which ones--they all sound delicious. Thank you!!

All of the posts sounds great. I love cream cheese and olive. I like to make chicken salad with a little curry, dried cranberries and scallions.

You can also make assorted fillings and spread them on flour tortillas, roll up, refrigerate until firm and slice into little "rings." Easy and great to make ahead of time.

Ooooh, yes, I had forgotten these. They are so pretty and easy to prepare ahead of time. I remember my friend told me this was something I absolutely couldn't screw up - spread a flour tortilla with cream cheese and then sprinkle with chopped green salad olives (the ones with pimentos). They are so yummy. I made them for my dad and he made them weekly for the last year of his life! They are addictive!

Do you remember, from years ago, the bread was sliced the long way, as for roll up sandwiches, but this went......put different fillings between the slices, then cover all with coloured cream cheese, and decorate with parsley, rose flower, etc. etc.

Ella, I remember that one. I think it was in my edition of the Fanny Farmer Cookbook. I never tried it, but it sounded as though it would taste (and look) delicious.

Can you get mini croissants? We got them in quebec by the bag for a luncheon. Really fun little things, less than 2 in long.

i used to do cucumber sandwhiches, without the crusts, cut into triangles or quarters. Brush the edges in mayo, and coat the edges in finely chopped parsley. We did the same with a liverwurst/ pate kind of spread, with really thinly sliced onions. They were really good.

The Pate a Choux is a great idea, can be made ahead of time, and filled with almost anything. There's no seafood mentioned so far. what if you did something like a Coquille St Jacques filling cut up small to fill them with? Or, what ;s the chicken one we used to make years ago and put in puff pastry shells?

Ella, my Mother did them for all showers . They were great!
