FANCY CUCUMBER SANDWICHES
Printed from COOKS.COM
2 medium size cucumbers
1 tub whipped cream cheese spread
shaker of dill weed
1-2 packets of dry Italian dressing mix
1 pkg rye or wheat cocktail bread
Wash cucumbers well. Using a fork, scrape down the cucumbers lengthwise leaving “stripes” all the way around. Slice the cucumbers into 1/4 inch slices or thinner. Set aside. (I didn’t do this)
In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese and dressing mix; combine well.
Using a butter knife, spread the mixture onto the individual slices of small cocktail bread (cocktail bread might be found in your deli section rather than the bread aisle, it’s just a small and dense miniature version of bread).
Don’t cake the slices with the mixture, just a thin layer concentrated in the middle of the slice.
Next, lay one slice of cucumber (per slice of bread) in the middle of the bread. Once done, shake a small amount of the dill weed onto the cucumber slice. Remember that dill is strong and a little goes a long way. Just one or two taps of your finger on the shaker should do it per slice.
The ruffling of the cucumber slices with the fork and the dill garnish really dress up this open faced appetizer. I actually put the spread on two pieces of bread and made sandwiches.
