"Party appetizers good for any time of year. When I wrap them in plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator, they don't seem to be soggy when served. Just make sure the cucumber is dried well, and don't skimp on the butter. NOTE: THERE IS NO COOK TIME, BUT IF YOU DON'T SERVE IT RIGHT AWAY, YOU NEED TO CHILL IT."

Step 1

Get a small bowl and mix together the first six ingredients.

Step 2

Butter each slice of bread on one side only. Lay them out with the buttered sides up, so you can add the ingredients on to them.

Step 3

Put some of the cream cheese mixture onto each slice. Next, make sure the cucumber slices are not still wet. Dry them the best you can. Place cucumber slices on three pieces of bread only. Top them with the other pieces of bread to form sandwiches. Remove the crusts from the edges of the bread.

Step 4

If you don't want to serve them right away, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. When you are ready, cut each sandwich into 4 triangle shaped pieces.

Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Diana. It was light and refreshing. Quick and easy to make with excellent results. I enjoyed this for lunch with a nice mandarine coleslaw. It was very satisfying. Made for the Joy of Vegetables Game.
