Delicious and stylish these Cucumber Sandwiches with herb cream cheese are a cinch to put together.  Making them perfect for any occasion from bridal and baby showers to a Saturday afternoon spur of the moment swim party.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 English cucumber peeled every other strip and sliced thin
  • 1 loaf soft white bread crusts removed

Instructions

  1. Using a stand or hand mixer beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise, dill, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper together until smooth and creamy.
  2. Arrange the bread slices on a cutting board in pairs of two side by side.  Gently and evenly spread the cream cheese mixture over all the bread slices.
  3. Arrange the cucumbers down one side or half the bread slices.  If desired sprinkle with a little chopped dill. Top with the other bread slice.  Cut each sandwich into quarters.

Notes

  • For best results use fresh dill and parsley.  It is flavor packed and perks that cream cheese mixture right up.
  • Use good quality bakery fresh soft white bread.  There are so few ingredients in this recipe that you really want to make them shine.
  • Peel the cucumbers halfway by doing every other strip.
  • To keep the sandwiches from getting soggy use English cucumbers and spread the cream cheese mixture on both slices of bread.  English cucumbers have very small seeds and therefore hold less water.
  • Slice the cucumbers fairly thin.  Use a sharp knife or a mandolin for slices that are about 1/8 inch thick.
  • These sandwiches can be made up to 24 hours in advance as long as you spread both slices of the bread with the cream cheese mixture and you store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
