A simple very effective sandwich that people really enjoy. The tanginess of the watercress complements the richness of the salmon.

1½ cups (375 mL) watercress leaves
½ cup (125 mL) chopped green onions
1 tsp (25 mL) maple syrup
Salt and freshly ground pepper
6 mini bagels
2 tbsp (25 mL) unsalted butter, softened
8 oz (250 g) smoked salmon
Sprigs of chervil or dill
