Herby olive & tinfish sandwich with cream cheese

One of my favorite recipes from the appetizer series I posted on Instagram a few weeks ago was the olive dip- this turns that dip into a delicious tinfish sandwich. You could really use whatever tin fish you’d like, I did the trout from Fishwife and added a layer of classic Philadelphia cream cheese.
