Some ideas for dainty sandwiches:

Cucumber sandwiches:

Slice cucumber as thinly as possible, leave to sit in a strainer with a pinch of salt for about 15 mins. and then arrange on kitchen paper to remove any excess water. Then spread some dairy-free butter on to two slices of thin white bread and arrange cucumber slices on one side. Grind a little white pepper on top, then sandwich the two slices together. Remove crusts and cut into finger size sandwiches.

Next,  Sweet onions & hummus:

Fry a thinly sliced red onion with a little olive oil and 1 tbsp coconut or brown sugar until caramelised. Spread dairy-free butter onto one slice and a little hummus on to the other, and fill with caramelised onions.  Use a butter knife to press the onions gently on to the hummus and arrange in a thin layer. Then sandwich the two slices together, remove the crusts, and cut into finger size sandwiches

 Or, if you prefer, Roasted Pepper & Pesto:

Slice a red pepper into large chunks & roast with olive oil until soft. Let them cool. Spread dairy-free butter onto one slice of bread, and vegan pesto on to the other, sandwich together, as above, remove crusts, slice into 3, and voila! You have a nice selection of dainty finger sandwiches to grace your table.
