Many of us are having wedding watching parties.  To add to your fun, here is a recipe for classic, easy cucumber sandwiches to have with your tea.


  • YIELD: 80 quarters
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • 20 sandwich bread slices
  • 20 thin wheat bread slices
  • Process cream cheese and mayonnaise in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping once to scrape down sides.
  • Combine cream cheese mixture, cucumber, garlic salt, and dillweed.
  • Spread cucumber mixture evenly onto white bread slices, and top with wheat bread.
  • Cut crusts from bread, discarding crusts, and cut sandwiches into quarters.
  • Store cucumber sandwiches in an airtight container for up to 1 hour before serving.

Wondering if the cucumber should be allowed to lose some of it's water prior to combining ingredients...

That is a good point. This is not my original recipe, so couldn't tell you the answer. Thank you for commenting, sounds like it would be a good idea though.
