Natasha's Kitchen: Salami Cream Cheese Sandwiches

I may have said it before, but I am not a sandwich girl.  If I'm going to eat one, it had better be the best sandwich EVER.  Well, as you can tell from this post, this is a pretty fantastic sandwich.  The herbal-garlicky cream cheese just does some magical things with that hard salami that are borderline indecent.  I was tempted to leave out the lettuce, but I think it adds the right crispness.  This is a sandwich for sandwich haters.

Salami Cream Cheese Sandwiches
Adapted from Natasha's Kitchen blog

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
¼ cup finely chopped green onion
¼ cup finely chopped fresh dill
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
8 slices sandwich bread
8 to 10 ounces hard or Genoa salami
4 large leaves green lettuce

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, green onion, dill, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce.  Mash the herbs into the cream cheese.  Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture on one side of each bread slice.  Top with lettuce and 6 to 8 pieces of salami, or to taste.
