Lemon Mayonnaise:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 lemon, juiced

Add some lettuce, tomato, bacon and the cooked salmon fillet to 1 bread slice and cover with the other slice. Cut the sandwich in half on the diagonal and hold in place with a decorative toothpick. Repeat with remaining ingredients and arrange the sandwiches on a serving platter.
