    Chef Shelby's Note:

    My work group would have a holiday feast each year the week leading up to Christmas. This simple recipe was one that I always enjoyed these because it was something different.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 loaf rye cocktail bread (aka party bread)
    • 1 (12 ounce) container cream cheese, pre-whipped (I use Breakstones Temp Tee)
    • 1 (2/3 ounce) envelope Good Seasonings Italian salad dressing mix
    • 2 cucumbers (peeled and sliced thin-1/8-inch to 1/4-inch)
    • dill weed


    1. 1
      Mix together whipped cream cheese and Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix until well blended.
    2. 2
      Spread mixture onto each piece of cocktail rye bread. (adjust the amount of mixture you spread on to your liking. I like the flavor of the mixture so I do put it on a little thicker).
    3. 3
      Then add cucumber slice to the top of each bread. (make sure the cucumber is a bit dry so it won't drip through and moisten the bread).
    4. 4
      Sprinkle dill on top of each cucumber. (It's fine without dill if you don't like the flavor).
    5. 5
      Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
    6. 6
    7. 7
      If making ahead, wait to put the cucumbers on. If they set on the bread overnight, it could possibly make the bread a little soggy).

      I made this for a dinner party yesterday. I couldn't find the good seasonings italian salad dressing so I substituted 1 TBS italian spice instead. This was a really big hit. Everyone really enjoyed them. They were quick and easy and I will definitely make them again!

      Everyone loved this. I only had dried dill so used that - very quick and easy appetizer.

      So glad you posted this!! I make them for parties, and people go NUTS over them. I've tweeked the recipe- use English seedless cucumber, and Old English Melba rounds. If you REALLY want a killer presentation, Take tiny sprigs of dill, and arrange on the yops to resemble seagrass... then dust finely with paprika for a bit of color. Also have had good results with Zesty Italian dressing mix. Thanks, Shelby!!
