Cucumber Sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • Tabasco to taste
  • garlic salt and seasoned pepper to taste
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. finely grated onion
  • white or wheat bread

Instructions

  1. Take one cucumber, peel, cut in half and scrape out seeds. Grate the cucumber and the onion into a piece of cheesecloth and squeeze out moisture.
  2. Put the cream cheese, mayo and seasoning into a mixing bowl with the grated cucumber and onion. Mix until well blended. I add a drop or two of green food coloring. Take the other cucumber, cut off each end and then drag a fork down the sides all the way around. I usually use my mandoline and cut these very thin. Now for the ones in the picture, I use a flower cutter for the bottom and a daisy cutter for the top.
  3. Cut out bread shapes (you can always just do them in rounds). Spread a little of he cucumber spread on one bread slice, top with a cucumber slice and then another bread slice. I sometimes make these one day ahead. If you are going to pipe in a center to the flower, wait and do that right before you serve them.
