English Cucumber Sandwiches

Have you tried English cucumbers yet? They’re a small different from the
regular garden cucumbers usually found in grocery stores and at
farmer’s markets, although they look nearly the same. The main
difference is English cucumbers have a thinner skin (so they’re better for
slicing and they don’t have to be peeled) and fewer seeds than garden
cucumbers. Another difference is that English Cucumbers are wrapped
in plastic wrap (instead of a wax coating) to maintain freshness.

When you need a cool and refreshing midday snack on a hot summer’s
day, or you want something attractive yet simple to prepare for an
afternoon tea party, serve cool and refreshing English Cucumber


Several small (party style) squares (per person) of various breads like
rye and pumpernickel

12 oz. softened cream cheese

1 pkg. Dill Dip Mix* (reserve 1 tsp. for garnish)

1 large English Cucumber, sliced very thin

Combine all but about a teaspoon (reserve this for garnish) of the dill dip
mix with the softened cream cheese. Place this mixture in the refrigerator
for at least an hour, so the onions in the dip mix soften.

Spread a thin layer of the dill/cream cheese mixture onto each square of
bread, then top with a couple of thin slices of cucumber (overlapped).
Sprinkle a small of the reserved dry dill dip mix over the cucumber slices
for garnish. Cut the slices into triangles, if desired, or serve as is.

NOTE: Refrigerate the sandwiches if not serving them straight away.

*Divine Dill Dip Mix from the Three Angels Gourmet Co. is suggested for
use in this recipe.
