Olive-Nut Spread Sandwiches

Lee Harrelson; Styling: Mindi Shapiro

These olive-cream cheese party sandwiches have added crunch from toasted pecans in the cream cheese mixture.  For a nice party presentation, you can use both thin white bread and pumpernickel and alternate the types of bread on the platter.  If you can't find thin slices of pumpernickel bread, you can use thin whole wheat bread.

Yield: Makes 2 cups spread
