Easy Cucumber Sandwiches

There are many great cucumber sandwich recipes for feeding a crowd. The problem is that since the recipes are intended to make a lot of sandwiches, we tend to only serve them when there is a crowd instead of enjoying them on a daily basis. Below is an easy recipe for one cucumber sandwich. You can easily double or triple it for a small tea party.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons cream of cheese
1 teaspoon creamy Italian dressing
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon minced onion
2 slices of bread
12 thin slices of cucumbers

Directions:

In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, dressing, and onion. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the bread slices:

Place cucumber slices on one slice of bread: September2010 121

Top with the other slice of bread. Cut into triangles, but DON’T cut off the crusts because that is just a waste of good bread! :D September2010 123 
And if there happens to be any cream cheese mixture leftover, feel free to scoop it up with some cucumber slices: September2010 131 
How do you enjoy your cukes?

Alea,
Never had a cucumber sandwich. Sounds great though I'll have to give it a try. I'll probably be the only one eating it so this is just right.
