Cucumber Sandwich

 

The recipe I want to share this week is a recipe I got on the Tasty Kitchen website.

One of my husband’s customers gave us a bag full of cucumbers. We love cucumbers. We usually eat them as a snack dunked in ranch dressing or I slice some for dinner and drench them in Light Italian Dressing. But lately I had been craving a good Cucumber Sandwich.

While browsing Tasty Kitchen I “ran into” Angie of the Arthur Clan! Angie is an amazing photographer AND one of the co-founders of i?Faces! Now, Angie claims to be a “non-cook” but what do I find in HER RECIPE BOX? Cucumber Sandwiches!! YES! SCORE one for ME!

I changed up Angie’s recipe just a bit to accommodate what I had on hand…..so here you go!

Ingredients

  • 1 YUMMY cucumber- sliced
  • 1 8oz tub of Cream Cheese (I used the 1/3 less fat variety – gotta save where you can, and this stuff taste like the real thing)
  • 3/4 of a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
  • 1/4 tsp Dill Weed
  • Salt & Pepper
  • slices of your favorite bread (I had honey wheat from the bakery)

Instructions

  1. Mix dry dressing packet and dill weed right into the cream cheese container. Mix until well blended.
  2. Spread a thick layer of seasoned cream cheese onto one slice of bread. Top with several slices of cucumber.
  3. Salt and Pepper to taste.
  4. Place another slice of bread ontop and ENJOY!!

  7. I love cucumbers, and I remember my Mother eating cucumber sandwiches when I was young. She never had ranch dressing to put on them then, but that sounds great.
